Cleansed Data from Transportation Studies and Surveys

For accessing cleansed data, use this sortable table to browse and search for transportation studies and surveys by name, date, state, agency, survey records, and more.

Cleansed drive cycle data are also available for the studies that include second-by-second global positioning system (GPS) vehicle speed profiles. You can download them from the respective study pages. To browse and download all the drive cycle data from different studies, see drive cycle data.

The cleansed data support applications that require detailed travel distance and/or speed information, but not detailed latitude and longitude spatial data. We also have one study—2007 Traffic Flow Study on the Effects of the Interstate 35 Bridge Collapse in Minnesota—that features only spatial data. Learn how to access spatial data.
