Galileo set to solve local mobility issues
The peri-urban areas are proving problematic for urban planners and local authorities. On the one hand, existing bus lines have very little demand. On the other, citizens in other low-density (i.e. low-demand) areas are requesting more public transport coverage. Service on-demand could prove the solution. Not only because of increased efficiency, but also from the societal perspective.
Being a public service, AMB will need to regulate and control how trip requests are served. The administration will play the role of interface between the citizen user and the service operator:
- Manage the front-office to receive requests, manage confirmations, cancellations, etc.
- Manage the back-office with regard to operator, assigning it optimal routes to meet the requests received, control expeditions undertaken, km travelled, fare collection, etc. Therefore, the route computation will be done by AMB back-office system, developed within the frame of the project by Pildo.
