An Integrated Information and Payment Platform for urban transport
2015 (English)Report (Other academic)
Transport in growing cities suffers from congestion and huge investment costs. It also degrades the environment. For the first time in history, advances in information and communication technology – ubiquitous mobile computing – now allow us to harness the vast transport overcapacity found in many cities throughout the world, and to optimise the use of transport infrastructure and public transport. This can be achieved by creating an Integrated Information and Payment Platform in Urban Transport (I2P2UT), open for all types of conveyance. The potential consumer, environmental and financial benefits of such a platform are as great as the institutional obstacles that stand in its way.
