City Tech launches solution to clear up curbside chaos

Dive Brief:
Urban solutions accelerator City Tech Collaborative launched a new curbside management solution in Chicago to help the city develop a better understanding of competing curbside demands.

The new solution will use data on economic activity and curb usage to model curb demand and value for the different groups competing for that space — whether it’s a restaurant delivery service, public transportation, freight providers or personal vehicles. The group will build tools for cities to manage operations at the curb with pricing, data and other technology.

The solution combines technology and analytics abilities from Bosch and HERE Technologies, in addition to modeling support and data from Stantec, Teralytics, SpotHero and Carrier Direct.
