Smart cities and communities rely on efficient, reliable and robust transport systems. This project will contribute to a better understanding of how people move in different levels of the public transport network and to offer new techniques to adjust public transport services to respond to actual demand levels.

Three case studies in the Netherlands, Sweden and Switzerland will measure how travellers transfer within terminals and urban and regional networks, in order to develop methods for predicting passenger flows, quantify the reliability of passenger experience and evaluate strategies for improved coordination between travel modes, especially in case of disturbances.
