The Eno Center for Transportation (Eno) was founded in 1921 by William Phelps Eno (1859-1945), who pioneered the field of traffic management in the United States and Europe. Mr. Eno sought to promote safe mobility by ensuring that traffic control became an accepted role of government and traffic engineering a recognized professional discipline. Eno focuses on all modes of transportation, with the mission of cultivating creative and visionary leadership for the sector. We pursue this mission by supporting activities in three areas: professional development programs, policy forums, and publications.
The Populus platform is currently used by cities from coast to coast to evaluate and plan for new mobility services, including shared electric scooters, bikes, and cars. Their secure, third-party data platform helps cities easily make use of real-time data from private mobility operators, providing transportation planners with the tools they need to develop informed policies and plan new infrastructure such as bike (or scooter) parking areas, bike/scooter lanes, and curbside space dedicated to shared cars. Founded by transportation PhDs from MIT and UC Berkeley who have dedicated their careers to delivering insights to cities on new mobility, the Populus team combines over 30 years of experience building software for the public sector.
