Remix is currently being used by over 4,000 planners in over 300 cities to enable planners to visualize tradeoffs when making urban planning decisions. The startup is attempting to streamline decision-making for city planners, allowing planners to drag and drop changes like re-route bus routes or additional bike lanes.
