The City of Ottawa and Ryerson University spinoff company Flybits officially released a mobile application called Ottawa Nav today, a commuting tool that delivers up-to-the-minute, customized road information to commuters. The free app is available today for iOS and Android devices. “Our city is going through significant transformation over the next few years to keep our economy moving,” said Mayor Jim Watson. “This new app offers another means to connect with residents and provide additional on-demand information to give residents better navigation through Ottawa and to help reduce traffic congestion.”
On Sept. 4, LinkedIn included us on its 2019 Top Startups list in Canada, recognizing Flybits as one of the hottest high-growth global companies to work for in the country. Also on Sept. 4, CIX, Canada’s largest curated startup investment conference, named Flybits to its annual list of Top 10 Growth companies — a list that recognizes innovative, mature startups with high potential to scale.
