Cities are wrestling with growing congestion, ageing infrastructure, and the challenge of providing more equitable transportation access. Meanwhile, lower-income Americans are travelling further and spending more money on commuting, raising their cost of living and creating new barriers to social mobility. But the answer cannot just be building more roads when we are struggling to maintain existing ones. Sidewalk Labs is teaming up with the US Department of Transportation and its seven Smart City Challenge finalists to design Flow, a transportation co-ordination platform that uses analytics and messaging to help cities work with citizens to increase the efficiency of road, parking and transit use, improving access to mobility for all.
