Their team has a long history of working with public agencies throughout their careers as transportation advocates, planners, and agency staff to foster more liveable cities.

Trusted by many of the world’s largest micromobility operators to deliver data in over 70 cities, Populus provides various resources for cities and operators to stay up-to-speed with changing policies and issues affecting the industry. Their latest report is a great resource on secure and effective data-sharing practices: A Practical Guide to Mobility Data Sharing and Cities.

Cities from Buenos Aires to Baltimore utilize Populus’ platform to identify and communicate new bike/scooter parking, expanded bike lanes, and equity zones. In addition to data from shared bikes and scooters, Populus also helps cities securely access and anonymize data from shared mopeds and carsharing vehicles as part of their mobility programs.

Populus recently announced expanded street and curb management solutions to empower cities with digital tools that they can use to identify, map, and communicate new street policies such as “open streets” or “shared streets” that restrict vehicular traffic to prioritize bikes and pedestrians, curb loading zones, and the conversion of on-street parking to allow restaurants to expand their outdoor dining areas.

With the transportation and global landscape rapidly changing around us, Populus is proud to be a member of NABSA. Now as much as ever, companies and agencies that are part of the NABSA community will need to lean in to deliver efficient transportation options that keep cities moving. Populus is honored to work hand in hand with mobility operators and cities that are committed to a safe and sustainable transportation future.
