Pioneering Big Data analytics to enable smarter transportation

Before StreetLight, it took manual counts, roadside surveys, and months of data collection to understand transportation. Our team combines machine learning with deep transportation knowledge to shed light on how people, goods, and services move — and makes modern analytics available on-demand to professionals shaping today’s transportation.

In 2011, StreetLight pioneered the use of Big Data analytics to make transportation and our built environments better.

This year, we joined professional services firm Jacobs, a company whose purpose-driven commitment to create a more connected, sustainable world couldn’t be more aligned with ours – and whose global scale can rapidly accelerate the adoption of Big Data to inform infrastructure at this pivotal time for funding, climate and society.

Together, we are committed to deploying our deep domain knowledge and digital solutions to help communities make well-informed – data-driven – investments in infrastructure. The challenge is a global one, and we invite our industry colleagues, peers, and clients to help us  accelerate our collective impact.
