About the Pocket Guide

The Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) of the Research and Innovative Technology Administration produces the Pocket Guide to Transportation as a compact resource that provides snapshots of the U.S. transportation system and highlights major transportation trends. The Pocket Guide contains a wealth of information divided into five sections:

• Safety
• State of Good Repair
• System Use and Livable Communities
• Economic Competitiveness
• Environmental Sustainability

The Pocket Guide to Transportation supports the BTS mission to create, manage, and share transportation statistical knowledge. This contributes to data driven and evidence based decision making.
