MYWAY project kicks off in Barcelona!

30 September 2013

The Generalitat of Catalunya hosted the kick off meeting last week for the brand new FP7 ITS project MYWAY which is a multi-modal journey planner with three test sites in Trikala (Greece) and Polis members Barcelona (Spain) and Berlin (Germany).

Placing the traveller at the heart of mobility, MYWAY will develop an integrated platform, the European Smart Mobility Resource Manager, which will facilitate an holistic view of sustainable mobility, combining all sorts of transport services and automatically handling transactions related to their usage into a seamless point-to-point mobility service. MYWAY will also be able to provide travel suggestions that are better optimized to the users egocentric perspective, and that of society as a whole.

MYWAY is expected to boost the travellers’ usage of greener mobility services by enabling the condiseration of allavailable resources and their appropriate allocation to journey plans, thus enhancing the attractiveness, comfort and efficiency of the transport networks and minimising the GHG emissions by stimulating users to switch to more sustainable mobility choices and behaviour.

MYWAY, coordinated by SOFTECO, has a consortium of 14 project partners from across Europe that range from public authorities, research centers to SME’s. It will be tested in three ‘living labs’ in Barcelona, Berlin and Trikala and Polis will be in charge of disseminating the project and its results to key stakeholders at European and national/local levels over the next 30 months.
