Ride Report

Job Description

Based in Portland, Ride Report is a small software company building tools to help cities make transportation more equitable, efficient and sustainable.

Ride Report believes cities are our future. One of the most powerful transformations will come when cities put the needs of people above the needs of vehicles. This simple shift in how we design and share the right of way will reshape the fabric of our cities, making them more equitable, sustainable and just a lot nicer to live in.

Technology has a role to play in this transformation, but we believe that cities must be the ones controlling it. Only cities are equipped to prioritize a system that maximizes public benefit by ensuring that every citizen, every need, and every perspective is considered. Like cities, we believe technology must balance individual needs with the collective. We believe systems work better when they’re designed to serve everyone equitably. Cities may need to evolve, but the sanctity and leadership of city governments will ensure that evolution serves the larger public interest.

Ride Report began in 2015 with a simple set of tools that help cities use data to make planning decisions that are faster, smarter, and more responsive to road user’s lived experiences. More recently, cities have used Ride Report to help manage the explosion in new transportation alternatives from electric bikes to scooters and everything in between.

More than twenty cities around the world use Ride Report’s comprehensive toolset to manage their bike infrastructure and the fleets that use it. Whether it’s deciding where the next bike lane is needed or what to do about that scooter stuck in a tree, cities use Ride Report’s dashboard to make efficient, data-driven decisions in an ever-changing landscape. With your help, we’ll give cities the data and tools they need to ensure we’re building a better transportation system that works for everyone.
