What We Believe

That great business practices and prudent policymaking matched with the appropriate technology can deliver first-rate results and positive outcomes. Technology is a means, not an end.

Effective public-private partnerships are relationships built on clear lines of communication, common goals, aligned incentives and outcomes. A long-term, triple bottom line strategy – people, planet, profit – leads to higher returns and a more sustainable financial future.

What We Do

We help city leaders, citizens and stakeholders to understand the complexity of 21st century challenges, facilitate people-centric solutions, utilize new models for delivery and technology-based tools to deliver triple-bottom line results.

In the process, we help government and companies to separate the techno-optimist hype from the real game changers that are often analog in nature.

GovTech Magazine featuring Gabe Klein
… One way for cities and towns to address resource constraints will be to co-create solutions within their regions, with other like-cities nationally, with the private sector and in some cases, with the federal government. Bespoke solutions are going to be a thing of the past, because if it is good enough for Washington D.C., chances are it is good enough for Arlington, Va., and vice-versa.
Bikes and small velomobiles will outsell cars.

Cityfi Webinar Series

Join Cityfi and Verizon for our How Smarter Transportation Solutions Can Help Ensure Mobility for All Webinar
Thursday, November 12, 2020 @ 10 AM PT/1 PM ET

COVID-19 is forcing cities to rethink their transportation infrastructure and reimagine public spaces—all to help protect public health. Drastic drops in ridership on public transportation are creating a vicious cycle of service cuts that affect the most vulnerable in our communities. But they also reveal a need for new mobility options. To adapt to changes in traffic patterns, many cities have turned to large-scale roll-outs of temporary pedestrian and bicycle infrastructures. For residents who do not own cars or who prefer to be more active, these solutions provide attractive mobility options that comply with social distancing rules. Our panel of experts will discuss how to develop a smart mobility approach that leverages technology while putting people first. We will explore transportation solutions that enhance resilience and sustainability—from micromobility, mobility hubs and mobility-as-a-service to congestion pricing and coordinated transportation demand management.
