    Swiftly launches to improve urban mobility for both residents and cities

    Victor Fontaine

      "Swiftly develops a real-time mobility system that helps city residents find the fastest and most affordable ways to get around town — from walking and biking to public transit and rideshare.

      The company has developed a more accurate system to predict when transit vehicles will arrive. This algorithm, named Metronome, already benchmarks up to 20% more accurate than San Francisco’s current real-time passenger information system powered by NextBus.

      In addition to that, Swiftly enables users to report transit issues such as delays or overcrowding to fellow riders. Swiftly also includes real-time information from Uber, with surge pricing, as well as walking and biking directions, to help give city residents more options when getting around town.

      Finally, swiftly works directly with cities to reduce congestion, carbon emissions, and improve the commute for residents. To that end, the company has developed a data-driven software suite which cities and transit agencies can use to improve operational efficiency, make smarter investments, and better engage riders. This system is currently being piloted with select partners."
