The Taxi Registry is a secure database that only certified partners may access. It features the location (latitude and longitude) and status of connected taxis, which are updated every five seconds. This data is kept strictly confidential.
Anonymization procedures, such as aggregation, still enable to draw real-time and archived data for various purposes, such as optimizing the service’s offer and demand.
The BTM will gradually publish non-re-identifiable open-source data, meaning available to anyone at no charge, through the City of Montréal’s open data portal.
