Order from chaos

Knowing your city’s mobility patterns helps you and the people who live and work in your city to see how to do things better.

At a time when we need to critically revise the ways our cities work, data analysis sets us on the right track. At the moment, cities have little or no authoritative data on urban mobility – data that is essential for planning, for tackling the climate crisis and for improving air quality.

One of the biggest issues for cities is transportation, particularly commuter journeys. Did you know that 40% of commuters choose their mode of travel on the morning of the commute? We want to help you give your commuters the infrastructure and support to make greener choices, and that’s where our data analysis comes in.

Helping Glasgow respond to climate crisis

Using data from Glasgow’s 2021 Climate Report, and in conjunction with our research at the University of Strathclyde, ETA created a cohesive data set for public transit and private vehicle commuting in the city, including the impact on air quality and pollution.

This data provided the City of Glasgow with the ability to track, visualise and predict the city mobility patterns, bringing order and paving the way for Net Zero replacement technologies. The data is valuable for all parties – from city planners and service providers to commuters themselves – and is further enhanced by flexible usage and delivery options. Having data collection structures in place means improved planning, decisions and business opportunities, and puts Glasgow’s leaders in the best possible position to react to rapid market and societal change, such as the current pandemic.
