The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Bureau of Transportation Statistics has expanded its Key Transportation Indicators with the addition of two new tables: U.S. Air Carrier Cargo Revenue Ton-Miles, a monthly measure of freight shipments on U.S. airlines; and State and Local Government Transportation Construction Value, a monthly measure of state and local government expenditures on air, land and water transportation infrastructure.

The new tables bring the total number of transportation indicators tracked by BTS to 23. Indicators are drawn from BTS and other sources to provide timely, accessible information for the transportation community. BTS also updated a number of existing tables that contain information on transportation and the economy, fuel prices, passenger and freight traffic, transportation costs to users, and system performance.
