Transport & Smart Cities

Building smart cities begins with transportation infrastructure

Heavy traffic, mobility and pollution are universal issues for Smart Cities, making transportation a top priority. 

Cities across the world must facilitate the movement of citizens within their urban agglomeration which is critical to their economic growth. In order to do so, they have to rethink their transportation networks, offer modern and secure public transport and promote its use.

Along with public transport, Smart Cities must provide a safe environment for their inhabitants, students and visitors. Tourists are also important. If cities wants to see them come back, they must provide a great experience, from access to transport to quality of touristic venues.
