Purpose and goal

This project brings together partners at PTA, PTO and Traffic Authority level, with operational and strategic responsibility for public transport, together with industry and academia, to pave the way for accelerated development in the field of crowdsourcing in public transport - based on real-world preconditions and requirements.

Expected results and effects

By creating preconditions for public transport passengers to participate, share data and interact in real-time with the public transport system from their mobile phones, a foundation for significant value creation is formed, in order to strengthen public transport as mean of transport. Furthermore, natural bridges are created against adjacent areas of development, where the connected traveller is also at the centre of attention; within combined mobility services and MaaS, transport automation and Autonomous Vehicles, as well as on-demand / last-mile transports, to name a few.

Planned approach and implementation

The project objectives are to establish a common understanding of the real-world preconditions combined with the opportunities offered by these new technical concepts. Furthermore, create common baseline of requirements, based on a traffic operators’ perspective. Also, in order to verify the technical feasibility, implement desirable functions within a pilot, practical evaluation is enabled, along with a foundation for further development.
