At LOCUS, we empower our clients to make better decisions by delivering validated Big Data solutions that help them understand the real-world movement of people and goods. 

LOCUS is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Cambridge Systematics (CS). Founded by a group of MIT professors in 1972, CS is a leading transportation consulting firm with over 50 years of success in the industry.

When big data (smartphones, connected vehicles, and other types) arrived on the scene in the mid-2010s, a few of us saw its massive potential for enhancing our transportation planning and modeling work. However, we didn't just need Big Data, we needed Big Data we could trust. It had to be cleaned, validated, and expanded rigorously if we were going to help our clients make better-informed decisions. 

After a multi-year research and development effort, we created the LOCUS platform, providing all the advantages of Big Data without the black box that keeps the underlying data processes a mystery to our clients. When you partner with us, we share with you how we transform data into insights, because we believe in the importance of transparency and accuracy in all that we do.

Our Work

Our platform was built upon decades of expertise and innovation, and we take the trust our clients place in us very seriously. 

We work with clients to visualize real-world movement of people and goods using Big Data. Travel demand modeling, resiliency planning, electric vehicle (EV) charging forecasting, safety analysis, transit redesign… we've done it all.
