City of Fremont Releases Challenge Statements to Startup Community

Since announcing the City’s participation in the 2019 Startup in Residence (STIR) cohort in August, the Fremont Public Works Department has identified and outlined two important traffic-related challenges that it will look to the startup community to help solve.

Fremont’s first challenge statement calls for a traffic incident communication tool that will proactively facilitate communication between City staff and roadway users who travel on Fremont roadways to mitigate problems before serious delays and bottlenecks occur.

The second seeks a solution to modernize and streamline the issuance of transportation permits and enforcement of truck routes and regulations. The requested platform would feature an automated approval/rejection process of proposed truck travel route, shared permit database with the Fremont Police Department, and integrated online payment system.

Overall, Fremont’s transportation-oriented mission is to serve as a national model of how an auto-oriented suburb can evolve into a sustainable and modern city.

Interested startups looking to partner with the City to design solutions to the above challenges may find more information and apply online for the Challenge 1 and Challenge 2. The selected startup(s) will embark on a 16-week program to co-develop a solution with the City that will create real and sustainable impact.
