A Tool to Track All the Mobility Modes - CityLab
The ability to summon a ride from a phone can open pathways that never before existed. At least on paper.
That’s one insight drawn from MobilityScore, a map tool from TransitScreen, a company that develops dashboards for transportation data. MobilityScore aggregates data on different mobility options available at any given location in the 30 largest U.S. metros, and generates a 0-100 rating.
