Facilitating & Accelerating Mobility Innovation for Cities. 

Our annual report highlights the projects, initiatives, and outcomes we delivered in 2021. From urban air mobility to electric vehicle charging and last mile robot delivery, our work has moved cities forward amid the rapid pace of innovation.

2021 Annual Report

Our Approach

Urban Movement Labs is a first-of-its-kind nonprofit collaboration of government, businesses, and the community to design and deploy transportation tech solutions in real urban conditions.

We build pathways for emerging transportation technology by supplementing city resources as a trusted third space to rapidly develop policy, and scale data-informed, community-driven and tech-enabled mobility solutions. Our work helps communities enjoy a more livable, inclusive and resilient future.
