Cities & Region - Transport

Managing congestion & Pollution

Cities & Regions globally are trying to address issues of congestion. Congestion occurs due to various factors such as a large number of single-occupancy vehicles, inadequate parking options, accidents & incidents, traffic related to sporting/cultural/shopping venues, and inadequate mobility services.

Many cities globally experience stifling levels of congestion. According to recent studies by companies like Inrix, congestion costs each American nearly 100 hours or $1,400 a year. Leveraging data-driven insights can drive change in both public policies and behaviors. In turn, these can result in reduced emissions, improved air quality and fewer pollution-caused illnesses among the citizens, especially children and the elderly.

Incidents & Accidents

Incidents & accidents cause a backup of traffic and severe congestion situations. Although temporary, unexpected congestion periods can last for hours at a time.

Useful information in understanding and mitigating incident & accident related congestion may include: live traffic incident reports and alerts, traffic flow data (speeds, vehicle counts, journey times) or even status updates from social media feeds.

Such information is useful to local transport authorities who can use it to timely dispatch accident cleanup crews, control signal timings, send real-time updates to traffic message boards, or share that information with the community. All of these techniques, individually or together, are effective ways to deal with congestion.

Venue Related Traffic

Sporting & cultural events, as well as retail centers, can be real regional attractions. However, they can also cause substantial, often repetitive, congestion periods in a given area.

Useful information in understanding and mitigating venue-related congestion may include traffic flow data (speeds, vehicle counts, journey times), surrounding highways traffic flow, parking availability, and transit & other mobility service options.

Such information is useful to operators of services and facilities around the venue. This can include a real-time view of the parking options and availability. It can be used to assess and optimize mobility options which can include public transit, ride-sharing, and other mobility services. All these methods ultimately help with creating a much better venue visitor experience.


Public transit (trains, metros, buses, …) are pillars of many communities. Suboptimal service locations and schedules can result in reduced ridership and increased personal vehicle use.

Useful information in understanding and mitigating congestion that results from inadequate transit include transit locations and schedules, transit vehicle occupancy rates, availability of first/last mile mobility options to complement transit, and demographics of served locations.

Such information is useful to transit operators who are looking to serve the community better and improve their ridership. It also provides insights into establishing the right partnerships with other mobility operators. This is especially important in the areas where transit is used for daily work commutes. It is also extremely important in disadvantaged areas where public transit may provide the only means of getting around.
