The smartest way for cities to manage heavy-duty fleets
RUBICONSmartCity is a smart city technology suite that helps city governments everywhere run more efficient, effective, and sustainable operations. A software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering originally designed for waste and recycling fleets, this full-service solution can be deployed across virtually any fleet to help reduce costs, improve service, and contribute to an enhanced quality of life for citizens.
Operational cost savings
Enhanced customer service
Improved fleet efficiency
Cities today are required to do more with less. RUBICONSmartCity helps existing government-owned fleets do more by transforming vehicles into roaming data collection centers.
Achieve safety gains
Our technology helps improve neighborhood streetscapes by monitoring vehicle health, improving driver behavior, and ensuring that materials are collected efficiently. The results: fewer vehicle accidents, less road wear, and safer communities.
Become more proactive
The most efficient cities are those that anticipate citizens’ needs before they call. The RUBICONSmartCity technology suite delivers insights about specific problems within a community, enabling governments to act rather than react and, in turn, lead to more sustainable, resilient, and equitable neighborhoods.
Realize measurable ROI
A high-value, low-cost solution, the RUBICONSmartCity system serves as the eyes and ears of a city and can improve the operations of individual vehicles, fleets, and entire workforces—helping to save tax dollars and reduce the administrative burden on city employees.
What the technology delivers
Service verification and exception flagging
Digitized routes, pre/post trip inspections, and weight tickets
City insight identification, like pothole and graffiti locations
At the inaugural Next Summit in May 2022, Rubicon brought together current and prospective partners to learn from our team and each other, share best practices, and explore how RUBICONSmartCity’s cutting-edge technology takes municipal operations to the next level.
Rubicon understands how to partner with governments and municipalities, and how to collaborate and bring technology and sustainability together for maximum community impact.

RUBICONSmartCity will finally—and I do mean finally—digitize trash and recycling routes in Baltimore City, allowing collection crews to cover routes more effectively and efficiently. The system digitizes existing operations, including route sheets, pre- and post-trip inspections, scale tickets and route details.

Since we joined with Rubicon, we have seen citizen satisfaction increase in solid waste collection by 17 percent. It’s really helping us to be far more on time and on task and to be far more efficient. We’ve seen over two million dollars cost savings in delivering those services in just trash collection alone.

Using RUBICONSmartCity has helped us immensely. The amount of data that we’re now getting through using technology helps us assess correlations between fault codes and devise better plans for our vehicles that are causing the most issues.
