At StreetLight Data, we are transforming transportation and urban planning with Big Data. Our analytics answer a deceptively simple question: Where do people go?

Our technology transforms anonymous, archival location data from over 30 million mobile devices into useful Metrics that describe travel patterns. We are the first company to provide mobility analytics as a subscription service via an easy-to-use platform, StreetLight InSight®. StreetLight InSight informs high-value, long-term decisions that profoundly impact our everyday lives. We support all types of urban and transportation planning projects, from subway line extensions and highway expansions to bike and pedestrian infrastructure.
