Location data for transportation & mobility studies

Leverage Quadrant’s mobile location data to study mobility patterns to build robust urban planning strategy, smart cities, and efficient transportation systems.

Transportation & smart cities

Location data is an extremely valuable asset for the transportation and urban planning industry. It can help optimize traffic, improve public transportation, manage energy consumption, improve emergency response, and plan cities more efficiently.

Government administrations and urban planners use location data to improve public transit systems, build smarter cities, manage traffic and gauge the ROI of investments into public spaces to maximise the usage of resources.. Private transportation and logistics businesses use mobility intelligence to improve their services and boost profits. Location data has proven extremely valuable for transit management post-pandemic as organizations all over the globe strive to understand changing human behaviour and modify their offerings to meet consumer needs. In addition, researchers and development banks have been using location data to highlight social inequalities and build solutions for welfare, such as disaster response, accessible transportation etc.
