In order to help people move around the city, it’s going to take a lot more than just infrastructure. In fact, it’s almost impossible to build our way out of congestion.
Urban mobility is an art and a science. It’s the beautiful orchestration of moving people and goods that comes from improving the efficiency of existing mobility infrastructure, increasing its capacity, and changing the behavior of urban travelers.
At the center of transportation system is the traveler. We need to influence the choices that they make so that they choose transport options that reduce congestion, but how?
The most popular device that travelers carry with them is their smartphone. This powerful piece of technology can help us connect the traveler to various transportation services in a way that benefits everyone.
Here are a few of our transit apps that are helping create a seamless mobility experience:
- Go LA, Go Denver, Go Bengaluru: Encourage multimodal transport by providing constituents with their mobility choices for every trip. Users can compare trips based on their objective: speed, cost, sustainability, or the healthiest combination. This locally-branded transit app is powered by Conduent and paired with our transit and parking.
- Shop & Ride: Incentivizing public transit is a great way to encourage more people to take transit. The Shop and Ride transit app delivers personalized, hyperlocal, mobile offers to transit riders based on their preferences and travel patterns. As soon as they sign up, they will begin receiving discounts, savings and special offers from merchants along their route. This app is part of our transit offerings.
- PayTixTM: We’ve partnered with cities across the United States to enable people to pay for parking tickets in a safe and secure mobile environment without any added usage fee other than a member city’s convenience fee (if applicable). Ask for this app to be added to your parking services.
