Auto Care Delivers Driving Insights With Arity Data

Traffic volume and total miles driven are a leading driver of market performance.

The Auto Care Association, in partnership with Arity, announced the latest addition of trackable industry data to the TrendLens data platform.

Traffic volume and total miles driven are a leading driver of market performance. With Arity Vehicle Miles Traveled, the Auto Care Association now is able to provide access to this data eight weeks faster than the United States Department of Transportation (DOT)’s reporting schedule, according to the association.

In addition to the DOT’s monthly VMT data, Auto Care Association members now have access to Arity Vehicle Miles Traveled data collected from more than 23 million active consumer connections by Arity – exclusively through the TrendLens platform.

With access to Arity’s Vehicle Miles Traveled, TrendLens users now can quickly gauge prior-month and prior-week miles-traveled data not only weeks sooner but also more frequently than DOT data. Beginning Feb. 15, Arity Vehicle Miles Traveled will be accessible on a weekly basis to all Auto Care Association members at no charge during the “Market View” 60-day trial period.   

The Auto Care Association’s interactive TrendLens data platform equips members with the tools, information and clarity needed to make confident business decisions in today’s dynamic economy. With access to more than 40 crucial economic and industry data categories, including Arity Vehicle Miles Traveled, TrendLens makes identifying the changes in driving behavior easier, faster and more reliable than ever, the association noted.
“Leaving the uncertainty of 2020 behind just got easier for our members,” said Mike Chung, director, market intelligence, Auto Care Association. “With faster and more reliable access to vehicle miles traveled data through TrendLens, our members can head into 2021 with more confidence in the business decisions they make for their future.”
