We're on a mission to put the public back in public policy

PublicInput.com was founded in 2014 by a group of transportation engineers and planners. After seeing first-hand the problems of the public engagement status-quo, they set out to build a toolkit that could reach more voices and make it easier to understand the needs of communities.

We believe that when public engagement is less costly, less painful, and more representative of community needs, it becomes a powerful tool for creating better policy.

Who we are

We're a team of planners, engineers, communicators, geeks, and artists focused on building a better interface for people and local government.
