Diagnose and Plan Sustainable Mobility

Modality is a strategic mapping tool to analyze, simulate and coordinate multimodal mobility.

A fresh approach to data 

in the face of climate and social challenges

An approach where data highlights the impact of transport plans on citizens, and ensures equal access to resources.
A visual and interactive approach that allows everyone to understand and create transport scenarios based on reliable data.
An open approach to more effectively integrate public transport with other sustainable forms of transport, including car-sharing, cycling, and self-service bikes and scooters.

Your data observatory for multimodal mobility

Knowledge management

Identify coordination problems between buses, trains, trams, self-service fleets, etc.

See all options in one place
You can identify missing or inconsistent data thanks to a visual interface that groups all mobility options.
Coordinate the different multimodal options
You can better detect gaps, duplications and inter-modal disconnections. You can also visualise underserved areas.
Analyse connections and routes
Study waiting times, disruptions, travel times, etc., in relation to the relevant population.
Uses citizen-centric indicators
In addition to network indicators, you can measure the system's impact on quality of life and the environment.
Decision support tool

Simulate new scenarios and test their impact on citizens

Create your multimode scenarios
Import your data to model mobility options that combine different forms of sustainable transport.
Test multiple hypotheses
On the interface you can modify the lines, stations, terminals and frequencies, and immediately measure the benefits.
Anticipate impact
Compare the strengths and weaknesses of each scenario, and measure affected populations neighbourhood by neighbourhood.
Calculate a score that rates how easily areas can be accessed
Generate isochrone maps and accessibility maps by combining different networks.
Consensus and confidence

Facilitate discussion and collaboration between mobility players

Save time in the preparation of diagnostics
Carry out your own strategic studies, independent of GIS teams or consultants.
Share a comprehensive view of offers
Evaluate the overall performance of all transport options thanks to meaningful visualisations, interactive maps and synthetic indicators.
Clearly communicate your plans
Use interactive demonstrations connected to the data to describe supply, demand and the population.
Reach consensus faster
You can quickly test each new scenario idea and clearly present its strengths and weaknesses.

Explore Modality: Discover our case studies

Grand Paris 2021 vs 2030

Thanks to Modality, we have shown how the new lines of the Grand Paris network will improve access to the area for nearly 5 million inhabitants.

Acces to jobs

There are great inequalities in access to places with a high density of jobs: we calculate it and visualize it thanks to the interactive maps of Modality.

Access to health

Who can get to a hospital without taking their car? We visualize how long it takes to go to the nearest hospital, by public transport, according to the place of residence, thanks to Modality.

Zones with little or no coverage

With Modality, we map the people excluded from the network: populations who cannot reach a metro, tram or train station on foot from their place of residence.

Tourist sites

To identify where to develop tourist accommodation, we calculate for each neighborhood access scores to the most visited tourist sites in Île-de-France, with Modality.

Co-founder & CTO

At Dataveyes, we have been working for 10 years with major players in European transport.

We saw the potential of data to design mobility that's adapted to the challenges of tomorrow's cities.

We also saw obstacles preventing this data from getting into the hands of all businesses. These include siloed approaches, too complicated tools, network-centric KPIs, static PDFs and Powerpoint presentations disconnected from data, etc.

With Modality, we want to facilitate the use of data for the benefit of all citizens.
