SpeedData: Alex Burrows of Centro


Alex Burrows, head of strategy at Centro

Alex Burrows is the head of strategy at Centro, the public transport authority for the West Midlands. He explained that Centro deals with enormous amounts of data, but has until now perhaps not been as aware of some of the interesting things that other people might be prepared to do with their data.

I spoke to Alex as the SpeedData drew to a close about how he’d found the event and what value he felt he’d got from it. We’d just been chatting to Matthew Somerville, who had been showing Alex his traintimes.org.uk site – an example of how other a motivated individual can take a source of data and do something interesting and very useful with it.
