This project develops and investigates smart solutions for urban transport problems.

Smart means that innovative technologies will be used (for example ICT and GPS based), and that smart ways to stimulate people to change behavior or adopt technologies will be developed and evaluated. The project considers road transport, cycling and walking, and public transport. It looks at a broad range of tools, including electronic fare cards, real-time public transport information, automated tracking of vehicles, and data from innovative pricing and rewarding experiments. The project brings together research groups, local authorities and case studies from Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Stockholm, Gothenburg and Vienna.
