Urban Planning and Transportation Engineering
Transportation – traffic, access, safety, transit use, noise, smog, petroleum use - is a critical concern for communities and developers across the country. StreetLight is the first company to provide detailed descriptions of how people use their city. StreetLight's metrics tell you about what type of person is on the move and where and how they work, live, and shop.
Our analytics enable more accurate modeling to support design that is less expensive and reduces risk of failure. StreetLight's service range from macroscopic descriptions of trip purposes, origins, etc. to detailed analytics of how individual drivers and vehicles perform in certain traffic conditions. Our data helps in designing more intelligent transportation systems and optimizing current assets to adapt to new needs.
StreetLight helps answer questions like:
- I need to better understand traffic flows during the weekday commute and average weekend for each season for a few key intersections. How can I do these with a limited budget?
- How do the different modes of transportation (bike, car, bus, pedestrian) as percentage of total traffic compare on specific streets?
- How can we accurately understand the most commom home and work locations for people who regularly pass through a specific city corridor to incorporate into our planning for public transportation expansion - and without having to rely on a transit survey?
