Italian Pilot Presentation

This week we focus on the Italian Pilot being deployed in Florence and Pisa.
Thanks to several key technologies (Web, QR-code, SMS, credit cards, mobile credit, PayPal), the pilot is integrating conventional transport modes (bus, tram,...) as well as shared mobility paradigms (car pooling and bike sharing). In addition park & ride payment solutions make frictionless multi-modal journey.
Have a look to the following slides to discover more about Italian pilot:

Serbian Pilot Presentation

 

In order to share what is happening in the four pilots we are deploying across Europe, we decided to dedicate a presentation to each of them. The presentations allow to discover the proposed technologies and how they are being used to foster frictionless and sustainable mobility.

This week we focus on the Serbian pilot which is running in the city of Novi Sad:

MobiWallet presented at Hope Workshop

MobiWallet has been invited to join and attended the international workshop on Multimodal Route Planning and Integrated Fare Management organized by CIP PSP Project HoPE, on 26 November 2015 at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technologies (KIT), Germany.

The workshop was a great opportunity to present MobiWallet ideas and share current achievements with a selected audience of solution providers, stakeholders and city representatives. Indeed, we had the occasion to make aware of MobiWallet cities like Coventry, Athens, San Sebastian, Molina de Segura, Tallin and  Sofia, discovering their current initiatives in public transport, ITS and IFM and the challenges they are facing in their roadmap toward the smart city status.

In addition, it was possible to exchange information, ideas and experience with HoPE project,  a sibling project of MobiWallet, being financed by the same EC program. Really thanks to the organizers, Lorena Bourg (HoPE Project Coordinator) and Sven Maerivoet (Dissemination Leader), for kind invitation.

GEST won Light Rail Awards 2015 with MobiWallet project

Gest, the MobiWallet partner that manages the Line 1 of the Florentine tramway, was highly commended during the Light Rail Awards 2015 in London, the 'Transport Oscar' event when the most important innovations in the sector of the urban transport were nominated.

Gest, a subsidiary of the French company Ratp, has been awarded for the "Best customer initiative 2015" with the project MobiWallet, by proposing a system that introduces the possibility to purchase at the same time the car parking and the tramway ticket, through a smartphone application. This advanced technology surpasses the obstacles due to the actual e-ticketing system, that allowed only italian SIM cards to use e-ticketing method, thus facilitating the purchase for turists and foreign people. Following the result of the Regional Tuscan bid for the transport, that assigned the management of the Tuscan LPT to Autolinee Toscane (controlled by Ratp Dev Italy) the project will be extended to the whole region.

"An award that shows the ability of innovation of the RATP Group – Bruno Lombardi, Managing Director of Ratp Dev Italy and President of Autolinee Toscane, comments – we are proud to experiment new solutions to make the life of the passengers simpler. Promoting the use of the public transport mean, simplifying the life of the users, and improving the offer of the service (thus answering to our passengers needs as best we could) are our principal and constant objectives."
