To the address the transport data challenge and to draw attention to the importance of tracking transport initiatives in the national level, ADB initiated the “Better Transport Data (BTD) for Sustainable Transport Policies and Investment Planning” project to design and populate a transport database covering Asia and the Pacific, and develop transport models tailored to 40 ADB developing member countries.

The project was implemented from July 2015 to December 2016 by a consultant team lead by Clean Air Asia, together with the Transport Research Laboratory (TRL), consultants from the University of California Davis Institute of Transportation Studies and Partnership on Sustainable Low Carbon Transport (SLoCaT Partnership), as well as regional data specialists. A parallel project was conducted on capacity building for transport database development by a consultant team lead by the Korea Transport Institute, under the joint Knowledge Sharing Program between ADB and Korea Export-Import Bank.
