Anadue sees an opportunity in Indianapolis to help residents access their public transport options, like IndyGo, more reliably, and making it more likely they will do so through convenient first/last mile options.
When green tech first/last mile connections to public transport are made more convenient, through being highly available, it makes it far more likely that people will use those options rather than driving a car, or getting an Uber or similar. Accessibility and convenience are the key motivating factors to get people to use transport other than their own cars.
A new wave of sustainable mobility is sweeping the US right now. Ride-sharing micromobility services (scooters and bikes) are in the spotlight, both for the benefits they bring, as well as the challenges they present. Forward-looking cities like Indianapolis have created regulatory frameworks to manage their deployment, in order to bring green, sustainable, well-managed mobility as an option to city residents.
Our CitySmarts product will use data from existing micromobility providers (eg Ford Spin, Lime, Bird) as well as data from transit provider IndyGo, in order to increase the number of transit rides in the city, thereby decreasing vehicular pollution and congestion. Our analytics platform will provide reports to the city on where people are using ride-sharing scooters, where they are parked, and how available they are to local transit hubs and bus stops. These reports will show the city where micromobility operators should deploy more scooters in order to help people bridge the last mile to or from transit stations/bus stops. It will help the city understand if the vehicles are being used efficiently, and provide insight on how to allocate permits for the vehicles, and which areas to target for minimum vehicle availability.
Operators will benefit from these reports as they will be able to improve the utilization of their vehicles, driving more efficiencies in their operations, by deploying the vehicles in areas where there is more demand.
The net overall effect will be that scooters or bikes will be deployed efficiently, according to demand, to areas where people do not have immediate walking distance access to transit options.
Anadue applications are built to bridge the gap between the city and micromobility operators.
Our City Smarts product also provide an overall view of how micromobility services in the city are complying with regulations, and how efficiently they are meeting the needs of citizens, in addition to the reports on connectivity to city transport.
The city analytics application will also provide the city with a view of the impact of its transport policies are having on the city in terms of traffic congestion, road speeding etc.
Anadue's analytics applications will provide insights to help the city and micromobility operators to provide more accessible means of connecting to bus services and other transport options. Our solutions help everyone to reclaim cities from cars.
