Our Mission
Solving traffic by building a smart and connected shared mobility ecosystem.
We are a young technology company working on solving urban congestion by promoting and connecting shared mobility services. Our Urban Miles program provides mobility providers and urban brands with the most advanced loyalty platform to incentivize the use of shared mobility services and ultimately making transitioning from car ownership to shared services more easily for urban travelers. One of our key areas of expertise is to handle sensitive multi-modal transportation data in a secure and privacy preserving way.
