Public transportation running on sustainable energy sources is essential for reducing CO2 emissions and limiting air pollution
With the growing population in cities, there has never been a greater need for people to move from one place to another – be it for either work, school or leisure. Cross-regional or municipal public transportation running on sustainable energy sources is essential for reducing CO2 emissions and limiting air pollution. Moreover, an integrated transportation system that uses big data to identify the need of commuters makes it possible to ensure smart and effective commuter behaviour.
We invite you to explore solutions related to public transportation in more depth below, find potential partners, catch up on the latest news and discover real-life case examples of how public transportation can help solve your city’s issues.
