Streets are jammed with new forms of mobility—delivery services, rideshares, even drones. Lacuna helps cities make broader, better use of fixed public infrastructure. Our platform, built on open-source technology, enables cities to use data to anticipate demand, conduct the use of streets and curbs, and to adjust policy digitally, with insights that show what works best, and why. We are on a mission to join modern mobility with the public good.


The Lacuna leadership team and Executive Advisory Board bring years of experience in transportation, government, city services, privacy, cyber security, and airspace management.
