Why We Exist
URBANIZATION IS CHANGING OUR CITIES
In the last 15 years, global urbanization increased by 15%. By 2050, an estimated 6 billion people will reside in urban areas. Unfortunately, there isn't enough space to fit 6 billion cars – the roads aren't nearly wide enough, there isn't enough parking space, and of course, we have to think about the environment too.
URBAN TRANSPORTATION IS BECOMING MULTI-MODAL
At Swiftly, we believe that the future of urban transit will be multi-modal, a trend we're already seeing start today. It will be a combination of public transportation, rideshare, carshare, bikeshare, scootershare, walking, and more. City residents need a way to compare these options in real-time to find the fastest and most affordable ways around town.
CITIES NEED BETTER DATA
Our cities spend billions of dollars a year on transportation infrastructure with very little data to inform those investment decisions. We believe that cities deserve more accurate and more complete information to increase the impact of their infrastructure investments.
Additionally, city residents deserve more accurate information about the real-time status of all their transportation options, both public and private.
We're on a mission to improve the way cities move by combining better information with beautiful user experiences.
