Since 2020 Manhan has been working with the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) towards developing a new web-based interface for accessing data from the Census Transportation Planning Products program (CTPP).
Contact us for more information regarding these ongoing efforts and find out how you can get involved!
Manhan and Macrosys have been working hard with AASHTO to completely overhaul how US Census Transportation data is retrieved. We are currently looking for members of the transportation and urban planning community that rely on this data to provide us with feedback on the new user interface design. If you would like to be among the first to see and interact with the new GUI and become a Beta tester, sign up through the form link below.SIGN UP form
This past November, a draft version of the API was released to a limited number of participants in a “hackathon” challenge, who competed against the clock to develop their own web-based applications using CTPP data. Manhan and AASHTO would like to thank all of the participants in this year's CTPP Data API Hackathon. Special congratulations to the following teams for their innovative approaches to utilizing the new CTPP API.

The judges were impressed with the entry from Puget Sound, that paired a very useful web-based data visualization app with an R library for accessing the CTPP data via the new API
