Smart Routing is Coming ... #Rethinking Public Transport Journey Planning

SMART ROUTING IS COMING... AVOID DELAYS & TRAVEL THE SMART WAY

WITH REAL TIME INFORMATION SMART ROUTING WILL EASE THE PAIN OF PLANNING JOURNEYS ON THE BUS, TRAM OR TRAIN.

The pace is picking up as the Smart Routing User Trials prepare to kick-off in Birmingham this week; with over 40 people already registered and ready to get on-board; the final tweaks are being made to the Commuter app before it's release.  Are you ready...? #Rethinking Public Transport Journey Planning 

Apple users ... Tired of Apps letting you down when trains are cancelled or delayed; want up to the minute information on all your public transport needs?  Then Smart Routing is the App for you.

Digital Birmingham is taking part in an 18-month Innovate UK research project that is pushing innovation in the way we plan, monitor and design public transport journeys. The project explores how Smartphones can act as a means of sharing transport data in an efficient and timely way, what the data privacy challenges are, and how the smartphone can deliver more effective means of travel personalisation.

Capitalising on advances in the study of Big Data, the information will allow citizens and businesses to be able to design and develop real time, personalised and ubiquitous public transport service routes. It also aims to help local authority decision makers in the long-term planning of transport in urban areas.

Smart Routing will be putting those innovations into practice in Birmingham, by launching a 6-month user trial for Apple smartphone users, starting in July 2017, which we hope results in you thinking differently about your public transport needs and how you plan your journey routes.
