Populus’ new mobility tool shows where riders use bikes, scooters

Populus added a new tool to its Mobility Manager platform, called Populus Routes, to ingest data from shared bike and scooter operators and present visualizations that enable cities to easily understand where trips are taking place. This adds to other tools in the platform, which are largely focused on device parking.

“It takes much more complex data — GPS data for every single trip and every single point along a route — and turns that into trip volume data so cities can think about longer range improvements, such as expanding bike lane infrastructure,” Regina Clewlow, Populus CEO and co-founder, told Smart Cities Dive?.
