“We’re very excited about the prospect of expanding low-cost bicycle infrastructure for our city.” – Ashley Crites, City of Tuscaloosa Director of Planning.

This partnership will help Future Streets Design test its technology in a real world setting, and provide clear recommendations for bicycle infrastructure improvements for the City of Tuscaloosa.

Future Streets Design is Launched

Co-founders Eric Courchesne and Dr. Erik Johnson are proud to announce the creation of Future Streets Design: an artificial intelligence company dedicated to helping communities expand their multimodal network.

“The future of transportation is electric, and personal. We see the expansion of multimodal transportation as critical infrastructure for cities and communities around the world. Increasing transportation options is good for the environment, good for society, and good for business. When those improvements can be achieved on a budget, it truly is a raising all boats scenario.” – Eric Courchesne, Future Streets Design Co-founder

“Artificial intelligence and deep learning will change the way we process information, and design our shared spaces. We can take a process that would normally take months, or years, and hundreds of thousands of dollars, and achieve it in weeks, and for a tenth of the cost. This is a giant leap forward in urban planning.” Erik Johnson, Future Streets Design Co-founder
