Mobility Measure

Mobility Application & Travel Planner for smart phones to provide real time information

The lack of real time travelling information in Cyprus is one of the main negative factors that discourage residents and tourists from using sustainable mobility modes.

Implementing sustainable mobility

This measure will allow the development of a mobile application and travel planner enabling tourists and residents to use real time information and plan their travelling accordingly. It will also provide tourist information that can be useful in ensuring an enriched tourist experience.

Through the use of this application, travellers will be able to determine the nearest bus stations, bike rental stations, bike sharing stations, electric car stations and EV chargers. It will also provide options of cycling, walking and hiking routes, with description regarding distance, level of difficulty, kind of bicycle required, etc. Information regarding points of access to the beach for disabled people will also be included. Travellers will be able to leave their comments and rating of the mobility products/services used for new users’ advice.

How did the measure progress?

LTC has undertaken several meetings with the Ministry of Communication and Works to design the technical specifications of the mobile application to ensure that it will be compatible with the PT control room receiving real time information.

The official call for tender has been published and a contractor has been selected for the design of the mobile application (Sept 2017). Several meetings have taken place to ensure that the application will operate in line with the contractual agreement. The mobile application is fully operational. Pilot testing period of 12 months.
