On 14th-15th May, the SPINE consortium came together in Barreiro, Portugal, for their General Assembly.

Over the course of the two days, lead and twinning Living Labs cities presented on their progress with measure implementation, the main risks and challenges they are facing during implementation, Key Performance Indicators to be achieved, and upcoming activities to carry out within the next six months. The cities also took advantage of the opportunity to interact with one another and the partners, and participated in a workshop focusing on the quality attributes that public transport should have.

Solution providers presented demos and mock-ups of the tools they are developing to improve the integration of the public transport system in the cities. The presentations, for example, highlighted public transport quality, the Smart City Platform, bike-sharing, journey planner, passenger crowding, intersection camera recognition, Low Emission Zones, Mobility as a Service, and a citizen app.

During the General Assembly, partners further provided updates related on mobility and user satisfaction, including public transport service quality to help guide design and evaluation as well as the SPINE co-creation toolkit. Updates related to policy recommendations, guidelines, gender equality, exploitation plans, and communication and SPINE training activities were also provided to the consortium.

The General Assembly was marked by thriving discussions, involving all modelling partners, focuing on modelling the future of mobility. The consortium was especially honored to have Professor Goulias, a distinguished member of our Advisory Board, contribute valuable insights during the session on mobility modelling.
