Create a multimodal transportation app to help the many football supporters attending Euro 2016 – first-time visitors – get around the city region during the competition. And, more broadly, create an application to limit single-occupancy car usage.
How we helped Saint-Etienne
Aggregating and interfacing the urban public transport network (STAS), TER and TGV (regional / high speed trains), bike sharing system, car sharing, ride sharing, 3 major highways, taxi hailing, new car parks, 1 regional and 1 national airport.
Reliability improved thanks to predictive information. We were able to integrate road traffic, public transportation and parking into our predictive model. Multi/Intermodal real-time journey planning, according to user preferences and location.
For example, route suggestions to leave the car at a P+R station, with access to P&R using a QR code.
FACILITATE THE PURCHASING
By building into the application the possibility of buying and using all mobility services on a phone. Public transport ticket purchase and validation via eBeacons or self-validation.
SIMPLIFY TRAVELERS’ JOURNEYS
Booking, validation, payment (pre/post payment, pay-as-you-go) and unlocking services in a single app. Reassuring journey guidance, a user-centric UX app – thus easy to use- and information on available parking spaces.
”When we worked with Cityway: firstly, it was decisive, and in practice it was very effective. We had a challenge to meet, which was the project schedule. The Mayor wanted to fix a tight schedule, and he wants the same thing for version 2.Luc FrançoisVice President Transport at Saint Etienne Métropole
