Objective Action

The MyWay basic goals are to:

  • Enable a better balance between mobility offers by facilitating the seamless integration of public transport and other sustainable public and private transport modes in users’ personal mobility choices.
  • Stimulate service cooperation and market development by providing tools and technical solutions for transport service providers and operators to help improve service offer, interoperability and acessibility in the overall multimodal service chain.
  •  Enhancing the personalisation and user adaptation of mobility services by increasing the cooperation between users and the transport system through incorporating user experiences, social networking and crowd sourcing in service planning and use.
  • Foster ICT transformative technologies in smart mobility by providing and validating in real-life conditions innovative technological solutions for the next generation of smart mobility services.
 

Target Audience

MyWay is expected to change people’s travel behavior with users travelling with more than one mode of transport in a single trip, becoming less dependent on private motorized journeys and aware of all the different options available. However, ιn order to evaluate the objectives of MYWAY, different Living Labs implemented in the context of three European cities, with different characteristics, using the MYWAY platform in order to setup working scenarios. The cities of Barcelona and Berlin are metropolitans and high desnity population areas, with intermodal transport systems, while Trikala is a medium size European city, with a limited public transport system.

 

Duration

From September 2013, to February 2016.


Description

MyWay project investigate, develop and validate an integrated platform, the European Smart Mobility Resource Manager, including cloud-based services and facilities to support community supplied information collection and processing.

The purpose is to holistically address the efficient and seamless integration and use of complementary, capacity-limited mobility services in the overall urban travel chain, including all transport modes (motorised and non-motorised, EVs, public transport, flexible services such as transport on-demand) and mobility sharing schemes (e.g. car sharing, motorbike sharing and carpooling). The platform tested in three Living Lab demonstrations in Trikala (GR), Barcelona and Catalonia Region (ES) and Berlin (DE) and  involving local users and stakeholders.

Impact on Society

MyWay is expected to boost the travellers’ usage of greener mobility services by enabling the consideration of all available resources, both public and private, and their appropriate allocation to journey plans, thus enhancing the attractiveness, comfort and efficiency of the transport networks and minimising the GHG emissions as users will be stimulated to switch to more sustainable mobility choices and behaviour.

Concrete project success indicators for MyWay are:

  • 10% shift in travel choice from private modes.
  • At least 5% improvement in mean journey times.
  • 5% congestion reduction.
