In a nutshell

The Zipabout platform is a multi-source, big-data and communications platform that combines static, operational and behavioural data to better predict and manage the flow and capacity of transport networks.


We not only use data from our client’s transport systems, but also source a wide range of relevant real-time information about other systems with which they interact and other factors, such as the weather and predicted demand, which can potentially affect their performance. These information sources are then integrated with the client’s information channels.

Using it

The platform is provided by tailored API to suit your business needs. One size never fits all, so we've included a few examples below to illustrate the wide range of applications that our clients rely on us to power.

Transport operators

Provides vital information about the ways in which passengers use their transport system and how they want it to work, including insights into real-life passenger behaviour and demand to inform planning and service design, improve efficiency and deliver cost-savings.

Transport projects
Smart cities

Smart city analytics shows behavioural usage of local infrastructure merged with conditional and operational data - from car parks and sentiment to air quality - helping you make informed decisions around usage and investment. Entirely free for local authorities, we'll even host your data for you.

Disruptive transport

We can't make vehicles drive themselves, and it's probably best we don't try. But we can integrate them with the network and their users. Predictive demand, deployment and disruption management and multi-modal integration are all part of the platform.

CAV projects
Freight & logistics

The Zipabout platform started with a capacity-optimisation project for the London 2012 Olympics, and that capability remains at its core. Multi-modal, door-to-door optimisation is in everything we do - whether that's people on buses on the roads or packages in containers at sea.

Investment & modelling

As agent-based modelling becomes more accessible for investment managers and strategic advisors, the agents themselves tend to miss the nuances of the real world. We can help build your models around the real world, and our data can help you win bids or better serve your clients.
