The Data Management Group (DMG) was established in 1988 on the basis of a proposal from the University of Toronto’s Joint Program in Transportation for an autonomous research group with the following objectives:

  1. Establish a common, centrally-accessible database containing information on transportation activities, zone systems, transportation networks and land use activity
  2. Provide a transportation data retrieval service to the participating agencies
  3. Monitor the adequacy of available data and propose approaches for adding to or updating the data as mutually agreed upon by the agencies
  4. Promote greater interaction between university researchers and practitioners in the field of urban transportation planning
  5. Promote the communication of transportation information and data obtained or administered by the Data Management Group to interested agencies and to the public
  6. Further the improvement of transportation demand analysis, research, and forecasting in the Greater Toronto Area.

Program approval and funding of the DMG is the collective responsibility of members of the Transportation Information Steering Committee (TISC) with the following membership:
