We’re excited to announce that Swiftly has been recognized by Inc Magazine as one of the fastest growing private companies in the prestigious Inc 500 list.

Swiftly has created the first platform specifically designed for public transit data and operations. And unlike legacy transit software, Swiftly leverages big data and sophisticated algorithms to drive efficiency across the transport operation and to boost the rider experience. Further, the platform includes a suite of APIs that enable public transit networks to connect and integrate with infrastructure and other modes of transportation.

Swiftly has seen rapid growth over the past twelve months:

  • Now serving 1.5 billion passenger-trips per year
  • 1.6B API calls per year to the platform
  • 5,500+ transit professionals using the platform across planning, scheduling, operations, customer service
  • Partnering with transit agencies / operators in 80+ cities
  • New customers including ComfortDelGro (Australia), Strætó bs (Iceland), State of Vermont, IndyGo (Indianapolis), Big Blue Bus (Santa Monica), SAPTA (Adelaide),
  • RideKC (Kansas City), SEPTA (Philadelphia), and Region Värmland (Sweden), Durham (Ontario)
  • Expanded historical analytics product offerings and built a new product line for real-time operations to help transit agencies manage rapid changes to service during the COVID-19 pandemic

“We’re thrilled to be recognized as one of the fastest growing private companies in the US,” says Jonny Simkin, CEO and co-founder of Swiftly. “Keeping public transit safe and reliable is more important than ever in light of the current pandemic. We are thankful to be partnering with many of the world’s most innovative transportation agencies and operators to support the crucial work they are doing to keep our cities moving.”

“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 come from nearly every realm of business,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “From health and software to media and hospitality, the 2020 list proves that no matter the sector, incredible growth is based on the foundations of tenacity and opportunism.”
