Profile

Shaping how people move around cities is complex, touching on issues of access, equality, and sustainability. Mobility is increasingly a policy priority, with city planners and policymakers entrusted to keep cities moving while meeting Net Zero targets. Yet legacy technologies do little to assist in 21st century urban mobility design. Remix, a collaborative mapping platform for transportation decision-making, offers a suite of products aimed at helping municipal workers make better mobility decisions. The products require no technical know-how. They prioritise collaboration and interoperability, making it easy to download data and share potential plans including between city planners and policy decision makers. All of Remix’s products are cloud-based, secure, and adhere to open data standards.  Remix’s Transit platform lets users design transit lines, leveraging demographic data and up-to-date usage statistics to inform decision making. Its Streets platform helps inform difficult yet crucial questions around transportation infrastructure and public safety by enabling city planners to test street designs with multimodal designs (e.g. protected bike lanes, bus lanes). Remix’s Shared Mobility platform gives cities deeper insights into the environmental and economic impacts of new mobile mobility options like e-scooters and dockless bikes. And Remix Explore is specifically designed for discovering transportation data and sharing ideas rapidly. With Explore, cities and transit agencies can combine transportation datasets to uncover multimodal insights and communicate relevant, local statistics.

Plans

  • Continue to expand internationally, particularly in European and Latin American markets.
  • Invest in serving customers’ emerging need for collaborative tools.

Company In Action

Remix became a critical tool for NYC city planners when Covid-19 hit and the city decided to close its subways from 1am to 5am for deep cleaning. To minimise the negative impact of this change, municipal leaders leveraged Remix’s demographic tools to determine where essential workers lived. They then created overnight bus services specifically to serve closed subway lines in areas where many key workers live. In just one week, the city used Remix to inform the creation of 1,100 additional bus trips on more than 60 routes, serving the over 11,000 essential riders that typically rely on overnight subway services.

StateUp View

Mobility data is hot property for city infrastructure planning, but can be siloed, difficult to visualise, and hard to understand. Remix’s user-friendly approach has led to an impressive range of contracts: reportedly 340+ cities and agencies across 5 continents, including San Francisco, Miami, Sydney, NYC, and London. While not the only transportation data offering (and currently lacking an Artificial Intelligence play), the Remix platform flattens the learning curve common with some competitors’ products. The combination of commercial nous and user-centricity may have helped to secure contracts—and backing by top investors.  Covid-19 is reshaping urban mobility. As cities increasingly seek green mobility solutions, Remix is well placed to build on its track record and help city governments audit and analyse transportation services, and plan more sustainable transportation and routing options.
