Context and Objectives

In 2017, legislation was passed requiring civic participation in the monitoring of public service delivery. [34] However, this legislation has not yet been properly implemented in the transportation system. [35] Responding to this challenge, this commitment seeks to optimize data collection on users’ satisfaction with transportation services, including roads, railroads, and interstate buses.

The commitment proposes identifying data collection tools (Milestones 5.1 and 5.2) and selecting them (5.3−5.6). The commitment is specific enough to be verifiable, but it is not directly relevant to any OGP values. While the commitment could improve data collection about transportation satisfaction, its milestones do not include a public-facing element. The milestones also do not directly engage the public or improve conditions for civic participation or public accountability.

If fully implemented as designed, the commitment will have a minor impact on optimizing the data collection process and encouraging society participation, due to its limitation in scale. The commitment tackles the creation of the tool, but not its implementation or strategies to promote its uptake among transportation users.

Next steps

This commitment is an important precursor for better engaging the public on transportation issues and could be pursued in future action plans. To increase the commitment’s impact, its milestones could clarify how citizen feedback will drive government actions. The suggested criteria for selecting the tool, for instance, could prioritize clear and direct channels for citizen input to reach decision makers. Also, information on how that feedback has been acted on could be made public.
