Transportation is rapidly evolving in cities – from the arrival of shared electric scooters to the continued growth of goods delivery, city departments of transportation are at the forefront of determining how streets and curbs should be prioritized. With COVID, even more demands have been placed on city curbs and streets, including expanding outdoor dining and creating more safe spaces for bikes and pedestrians.
The Populus platform is being used by cities around the world, empowering them with secure, easy-to-use digital solutions to efficiently manage their streets and curbs. With access to better data from private fleet operators, such as shared scooter, mopeds, cars, and delivery, cities are better able to determine where to place new protected bike infrastructure, scooter drop zones, and pick-up and drop-off areas. The platform also helps cities communicate new policies, such as streets closures and curb policies, digitally to mobility stakeholders.
This demo will feature new solutions that are accelerating digital management of the public right of way. City panelists from the City of Oakland and City of Baltimore will share how they are leveraging data-driven solutions to identify new policies, and to digitally communicate new street and curb policies to key mobility stakeholders.
