Who We Are

Incubated at Cambridge Systematics, LOCUS was built on over 50 years of deep transportation modeling and planning expertise. Our unparalleled industry experience in cleaning, validating, expanding, and integrating transportation, land use, and socio-demographic data allows us to deliver innovative solutions on a unified platform.


Our Platform

Harnessing the power of Big Data from smartphones, telematics, traffic sensors, and transportation surveys, we generate high-fidelity, reliable, and privacy-compliant transportation insights. We provide turnkey and highly customized solutions that meet your needs, with full visibility into how we transform data into insights.


What Our Customers Say

  • "We are using LOCUS at Caltrans to update the statewide model and are very satisfied with the level of customization that was done to meet our requirements and the attention to detail in validating the data with external sources."

  • "LOCUS is a valuable tool for analyzing travel patterns. We were able to target specific Metrolink lines and train slots for added service, and this would have been a much more difficult and inaccurate activity without the excellent dataset and analysis tools that LOCUS provided."

  • "We chose LOCUS because it was validated to local conditions and because the LOCUS team customized their platform to our needs. We are pleased with the collaborative approach that the LOCUS team brought to the table and also with project outcomes."


Radical Redesign: A Closer Look

In the last half century, so much has changed about the way people move around their communities. Yet, our public transit systems have largely remained static, and transit agencies are struggling. Swift commercial and residential development, evolving land use, and rapid population growth are contributing to this transformation, especially over the past two decades. Transit agencies are losing ridership, with slow rates of post-pandemic recovery.
