The density of urban areas continue to grow.

The challenges of mobility are becoming crucial and communities all over the world are facing new trends, integrating or proposing new uses and a new way of living downtown.

The city of tomorrow has a choice, will they be the next, “smart” city?

Over 6 decades ago, we started designing and building systems to improve urban mobility and have continuously adapted to become a true part of the Internet of Things.  Our unique portfolio of solutions is connected to a global technology platform delivering day-to-day benefits to our clients and their customers.

With Flowbird, the city becomes EASIER, SAFER, FASTER.



In partnership with our clients around the globe, we identify the best ways we can make an impact on the mobility landscape.  People’s needs are constantly changing and downtown travel is becoming more complex. That is why we invest heavily, with over 400 people in research & development, to ensure our systems are flexible and adaptable.


We have open and straightforward communication with our customers and partners. We discuss challenges and opportunities openly within Flowbird.  Our solutions platform is cloud hosted allowing us to provide critical data to our clients that lets them build solutions to meet these important challenges.


With 90 patents across 26 countries, our systems serve millions of people each day that are trying to find the best way to get to their desired destinations.  Our clients rely on us to provide user-friendly, secure, and reliable products to keep their cities moving.  They also trust that these products are connected to a robust platform allowing for open integration with other city partners.


Born out of the 2018 merger between Cale and Parkeon, Flowbird has been making it easier for people to travel in and around downtown areas for the past 50 years.

Our US operations started with parking meter pilots in New York City in 1988, which led to the introduction of on-street solar powered multi-space meters in the “Big Apple” along with cities such as Aspen, CO and Portland, OR.  We are proud to continue to serve those clients, and have significantly expanded into other major cities including Austin, Chicago, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and Miami to name just a few.  

In 2009, we launched our fare collection systems in the US for the transit market, leveraging on our success with unattended outdoor payment devices.  Starting with a focus on the emergence of bus rapid transit systems, our technology has evolved to support standard full service bus systems as well as light rail, streetcar, and ferry systems.

In 2014, we entered the world of mobile payments, and now people across the United States utilize the Flowbird App, Pay by Text Solution, and Mobile Ticketing App, providing simplicity and convenience.

Today we serve over 5,000 clients worldwide including over 900 cities and universities throughout North America.


When people head out to work or for a night on-the-town, they have many ways to get close to their destinations.  However, there is very rarely a Point-A to Point-B.  There are typically multiple stopping points before people get to where they really want to go.  And many questions can come up.

  • I can drive into town, but won’t there be a ton of traffic? 
  • If I do park downtown, will there be a parking meter or parking app?
  • Is my location within walking distance of the parking garage or do I need to take a taxi or ride share?
  • I can drive to a Park & Ride lot, but isn’t it a hassle to pay for parking and pay for a train ticket on different devices? 

Flowbird provides solutions to help ease the pain of downtown travel.  We help clients build a “last mile experience” and make it easier to get around and give people confidence that their journey will be a pleasant one.
