The Urbanomics Mobility Project is being previewed during Smart Cities Week in Washington, D.C. from September 15 – 17.

The initiative leverages Urban Insights’ big data analytics and visualization technology; Cubic’s expertise in processing more than $24 billion per year in public transportation revenue; and spending trends and insights derived from 43 billion transactions processed over the MasterCard network each year."
