About us

At WhereIsMyTransport, we are building the definitive digital solution for sustainable urban mobility in emerging markets; improving the passenger experience for the hundreds of millions of riders who use informal and formal public transport every day, and who don’t have access to the information they need because it simply doesn’t exist. We collect and digitalise mobility data, and through our integrated mobility data platform, we help NGOs, DFIs, and the largest cities in these markets to make better investments and better decisions, so that everyone everywhere can get where they want to go.
