- June 10: A data-driven business
A centralised transport data Platform for integrated urban mobility in emerging citiesThe reality in African cities, as in many emerging countries, is that the vast majority of the population relies on informal means of transport to access opportunities. By increasing availability of information on disparate formal and informally run transport systems we now offer an unprecedented opportunity to respond to challenges of equitable access to socio-economic opportunities through a more comprehensive picture of the mobility landscape. This picture is facilitated through a central Integrated Transport System (ITS) – a cloud-based, single platform that consolidates intelligent technologies providing a single information source for transport data and management.
