URBANIZATION IS CHANGING OUR CITIES

Swiftly San Francisco Skyline

Urbanization is changing our cities. In the last 15 years, global urbanization increased by 15%. By 2050, an estimated 6 billion people will reside in urban areas. Unfortunately, there isn't enough space to fit 6 billion cars – the roads aren't nearly wide enough, there isn't enough parking space, and of course, we have to think about the environment too.

At Swiftly, we believe that the future of urban transit will be multi-modal, a trend we're already seeing start today. It will be a combination of public transportation, rideshare, carshare, bikeshare, skootershare, walking, and more. We're on a mission to help city residents compare these options in real-time to find the fastest and most affordable ways around town.
