Swiftly has created the first cloud-based data platform specifically designed for public transit data and operations. Unlike legacy transit software, Swiftly leverages big data and sophisticated algorithms to drive efficiency across the transit operations to boost the rider experience. Further, the platform includes a suite of APIs that enable public transit networks to connect and integrate services with other modes of transportation.
Swiftly has seen rapid growth and has more than doubled in size over the past twelve months. “We are thrilled to partner with SMRT as we look to accelerate our growth into Asia,” said Jonathan Simkin, Co-Founder & CEO of Swiftly. “Beyond growth, one of our core goals at Swiftly is to build a transportation community where we can share best practices that we observe around the world. We’re delighted to be able to include SMRT and Singapore within this network to broaden the scope of our reach.”
