Our Mission

In the Majority World, mobility is still a critical stumbling block for billions of people who live without reliable access to public transport services; lacking the basic freedom of movement they need to improve their life situation.

We’re working hard to change that - using data and technology to develop innovative solutions for sustainable urban mobility. In short, we believe that everyone - everywhere - should be able to get where they need to go using reliable, safe, and accessible public transport.

That’s our mission. And our people are key to its success. We know that this growing team of people - around the world - must be as diverse as the populations that use our data and technology to improve their lives, and as inclusive as the solutions we develop for them. We celebrate difference - race, ethnicity, social background, religion, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation and national origin.
