The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) has unveiled its "Mobility Dashboard" to help the public understand the effects of COVID-19 on the state's transportation network.

MassDOT is collecting data and monitoring the impacts of COVID-19 on transportation, including on roadways and transit services. Updated weekly, the dashboard will serve as an interactive roundup of key indicators that reflect how much people are traveling, how they're getting around and where they're going in the state, MassDOT official Klark Jessen wrote on the agency's blog.

"The dashboard is just one of the ways that MassDOT is compiling and monitoring transportation data," said MassDOT Secretary and Chief Executive Officer Stephanie Pollack. "Having one central location to access and analyze the impacts of COVID-19 increases public accessibility."

The dashboard organizes multimodal data covering traffic volumes, transit revenue, safety and other topics in one place, the blog states.
