Remix Helps Cities Redesign Streets to Meet the Needs of People
Mobility options have exploded in cities, and allocation of street space continues to be a ferocious battleground. As private vehicles and operating companies compete for public space on streets, cities will need to take an even more proactive role to establish human-centered policies.
"Remix empowers cities to take a proactive role in reclaiming their streets, and ensure redesigns improve safety, and promote equity and sustainability," said Tiffany Chu, co-founder at Remix, and head of the company's expansion into street design.
Remix expects to make their street design functionality available to the broader community in Fall 2018.
Trusted by over 300 cities on four continents, the Remix team of urbanists and technologists helps cities and agencies envision, understand and communicate plans to get the best ideas implemented. Headquartered in San Francisco, Remix was founded in 2014.
