Our founders met in 2014 while doing fellowships at Code for America, a nonprofit focused on empowering local governments with the core belief that “government can work for the people, by the people, in the digital age.” It wasn’t long before Sam, Dan, Tiffany, and Danny discovered their shared passion for transportation and the impact it can have on making cities more livable.
They built a simple grassroots project for citizens of San Francisco to suggest better transit routes to their local agency. That prototype got picked up on an urban planning blog and received an overwhelming response from transportation planners across the world – people had been wanting an easy-to-use tool like this for years, and everyone had a ton of requests for further enhancements. Remix was created to help cities plan their transportation networks.
In March 2021, Remix started a new chapter as part of Via, the leading software platform for public mobility across five continents. Joining forces with Via represents an incredible opportunity to tackle some of the biggest mobility challenges we face in the decade to come.
Today, Remix works with 600+ cities across five continents, influences hundreds of city projects, and impacts more than 250 million people worldwide.
