By making better use of data, urban traffic and transport can be improved and made more efficient and sustainable, and cities can become more liveable and attractive. There is evidence from different countries showing that the provision of open data delivers benefits: to travellers and users by improving their journey experience and saving them time, and to transport organizations and authorities by enabling them to operate more efficiently while demonstrating openness and transparency to those who - directly or indirectly - fund them. To encourage cities and (public transport) companies to open their data more than they do now and to show how this works in practice, in this webinar some stories were shared. In the webinar some nice and diverse examples were shown of how data can be translated into useful information that can then be used to enable certain services and measures. Claudio Mantero (from Horarios do Funchal) showed the example of sharing public transport data and displaying departure times in Funchal (Madeira) and Tommaso Bonino (from Bologna, SRW - Reti e Mobilità) showed the example of what can be done with cycling data (plan locations of 1,000 bicycle shelters!) and public transport data. Aviad Heilbrun (from the city of Tel Aviv-Yafo) and Torbjørn Barslett (from Ruter As in Oslo) presented how they collect and present open data (technical platform) and what is done with it. In Tel Aviv-Yafo two hackathons were organized (in 2014 and 2016) and this helped in building a community around open data and generating a lot of ideas on what to do with the data.

In dealing with traffic and transport cities across Europe have to find a balance between throughput, livability, safety and sustainability. Different modes of transport use the same infrastructure and most cities do not have the capacity to enlarge the network. Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) and traffic management can help deal with managing traffic and transport in cities. Developments in this domain - with regard to big data, in-car technology, mobile applications but also Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning (SUMP) - have developed rapidly recently. This leads to questions for policy makers, practitioners and traffic managers, such as: how can traffic management and ITS contribute to my policy ambitions? What do technological developments mean for systems in place in my city? How can I benefit from innovations in this field? At the moment a policy note is being prepared within CIVITAS that aims to facilitate European municipalities in their selection of sustainable, environmental friendly and cost-efficient ITS and traffic management measures to keep in line with European, national and urban goals and to fulfill the specific requirements of the city. In the webinar this policy note will be presented. The city of Malaga will present one of their ITS measures: intelligent traffic control and software development for the Management Centre of Mobility (MOVIMA). This measure aims to improve traffic flow by means of implementing advanced traffic control tools focused on reducing stop-and-go traffic, reducing and/or adapting speed, and maximizing the reduction of emissions through traffic control.
