Moovit is delighted to announce that it has signed a global agreement with design, engineering and project management consultancy, Atkins, part of the SNC-Lavalin group, that will help cities improve their transit systems and become more efficient smart cities.
The Atkins-Moovit partnership brings together the extensive infrastructure experience of Atkins’ designers, engineers and project managers and Moovit’s data-driven analytics that are gleaned from up to 500 million data points a day on our number one transit app.
Together, Atkins’ and our services will aid the design and delivery of people’s movement in cities across all transport systems, along with the ability to meet the demands of new intelligent mobility opportunities. These services include:
Lee Woodcock, global product director for Intelligent Mobility at Atkins, commented on the new partnership: “Leaders of cities are under more pressure than ever to develop easy-to-access transport systems, creative hubs and liveable places for residents and visitors. Through the Atkins-Moovit partnership, we will be able to provide real-time, value-driven insights that will allow civic leaders, transport agencies and national governments to discover and explore in more depth the mobility and movement of people throughout their public spaces and on transport networks. These new evidence-based insights can then be used to support financial investment decision making and ensure each city is applying a user centered design approach to future infrastructure.”
“Moovit believes the future of urban mobility lies in the quality of data provided to cities and municipalities so they can plan and implement smart, efficient transit systems that meet the demands of ever-increasing populations,” said Josh Wine, Moovit’s chief revenue officer. “Moovit was an early pioneer in developing Mobility as a Service and is now ensuring cities around the world have the right transit data and analytics to achieve truly smart city status.”
