Webinar on interactive mobility 3/4 - the personalised travel info case from Aalborg, Denmark

Aalborg is keen to make reliable public transport information easily accessible to help users plan their journeus well. The city expects that modern travel information will make public transport more attractive. The main objective of this initiative is to increase public transport user satisfaction by providing simple access to up-to-date travel information.

The City of Aalborg developed two existing traffic information websites in order to give travelers better and more reliable information and by giving access to the right information influencing the traveller choice of modes of transportation, transportation time and route. The two web pages that have been enhanced are www.NordjyllandsTrafikselskab.dk and http://www.aalborg-trafikinfo.dk (renamed to Trafkken.dk/Nordjylland).

Evaluation results show, that there were respectively 88% and 93% more users on the websites the first year after the modernisation and that these numbers have continued to rise in the following years. The main purpose of this measure was to give update and reliable information to the road users and this objective has been fulfilled. People are using the web pages more in the normal situation and especially in situations when conditions vary from normal.

The City of Turin offer to its citizens a useful multimodal Internet Trip Planner: this system provides the citizens real arrival times at bus stops, best path calculation, real time availability in the parking areas.

The Internet Trip Planner managed by the City of Turin is able to integrate the following city sub-systems in order to provide reliable and Real-Time information on the traffic and mobility conditions:

  • Public Transport information services at the bus stop displays, on-board displays, sms info, …;
  • Urban traffic Control that improves traffic flows conditions providing "green light" priority to public transport;
  • Traffic Operation Centre and Variable Message Signs panels, that provides information about traffic conditions and parking availability in the metropolitan area;
  • Limited Traffic Zone that controls vehicles access in the Torino city center;

The system was launched during the Winter Olympic Game in 2006 and it is continuously improved. The next step will be to enlarge the operating area from the City of Turin to the whole Piemonte Region.
