City Council Passes Plan To Collect Data On Movement

(Portland, OR)  --  The Portland City Council is moving forward with a pilot test of a location-tracking program.  The one-year agreement will cost the Portland Bureau of Transportation, TriMet, and regional government Metro over 457 thousand dollars, and then 12 cents per resident in years that follow.  The Replica software uses data collected by smartphones and apps to track people's movements.  Officials say it will allow them to better understand how people use streets, sidewalks, and transit.
