“The Open Data Hub is about empowering the public with information,” said Commissioner Joseph Giulietti in a press release.
“By putting data at the fingertips of the people we serve, we are transforming the way the CTDOT does business. Transparent and accessible data on the Hub will foster better understanding of the work we do as one of the state’s largest agencies and help drive better collaboration in problem-solving and innovation.”
In addition, the release of CTDOT’s Hub is in part due to the Lamont Administration’s efforts to provide the general public with certain department datasets, according to the press release.
To access the hub, visit the State of Connecticut’s Open Data portal or by visiting CTDOT’s website.
