Each year we share our Traffic Data Inc.’s data collection price list and the 2016 price list has just been released. Traffic Data Inc. is primarily focused on data collection in the Midwest (especially Minnesota and Wisconsin).
Many data collection firms require you to call them for a quote on each project you have. We provide this price list to our clients, and anyone who is interested in data collection, so you can plug in our pricing without needing to contact us for a quote on every potential project. I highly recommend data collection firm’s develop a standard rate sheet too. It’s saved us and our clients a lot of time and I don’t think we’ve lost very many projects based on price either.
Last year we dropped our longer duration turning movement count prices. We’ve done well in nudging our marketplace from collecting 2-hour peak period turning movement counts in the a.m. and p.m.
to collecting 13 hour long turning movement counts from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. And more and more, we are seeing our clients move to 24 hour movement counts.
Our 2016 pricing sheet is free and provides all of the information you need to get a cost on a TMC project.
