Conveyal is a consultancy specializing in open data and open source technology for the transport sector. We offer both strategy and implementation services for governments, transport providers, and non-governmental organizations interested in building the next generation of open transport technology, with a particular emphasis on sustainable transport modes and the smarter use of existing transport and data infrastructure. We bring a strong focus on the needs of the end user -- those using the transport system on a daily basis -- to all of our work.
Our principals offer a unique combination of expertise in urban planning, open government, and information technology, with extensive experience in the development and application of high quality, user-centered tools for open transport data collection, management, analysis, and visualization for clients around the world. While we possess skills in creating software, software itself is not our end product; rather, we leverage technology to achieve improved transport outcomes.
Born out of the OpenPlans transportation technology group, we are core developers behind the OpenTripPlanner (OTP) multimodal trip itinerary planning platform and the creators of OTP Analyst, a research platform for generation of transport accessibility metrics. Currently active projects include OTP enhancement and deployment support for TriMet in Portland, OR; support for a national-scale OTP deployment in the Netherlands; and development of transport data collection and management tools in the Philippines and Mexico City via the World Bank.
Conveyal is based in Washington DC and also has offices in Paris and Atlanta. For more information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
