Our vision

Reduced global emissions from transport.

Our mission

Give the public and private sectors the tools to optimise and deliver dynamic networks that are ultra-efficient, reliable, and widely used by people everywhere.

Passengers are the lifeblood of every successful transportation system, but it is more difficult than ever to deliver a network that serves passenger needs. With constant changes to the operating environment, the bus industry lacks accurate insight into where service can improve the passenger experience (and ultimately grow their networks).

The CitySwift platform was built to break down all of the barriers to data that bus network providers have to deal with.

Our partners no longer take action based on manual analysis, guesswork, and inaccessible and unreliable data. Instead, they meet and exceed punctuality and reliability goals, without compromising on resource.

What makes CitySwift so powerful is that we come from a background of real-world bus industry experience. We merge this industry experience with deep knowledge of data science, to give bus networks the best of both worlds.
