June 06: Building sustainable and equitable transportation choices across the globe
Flexitransport Catalunya platformThe speech will begin with a brief reflection on the importance of public transport and transport on demand as an alternative and complementary solution to traditional transport systems of greater capacity. Next, the characteristics of the Flexitransport Catalunya system will be presented, emphasizing its ability to adapt to different territorial realities thanks in large part to its parameterizable and configurable design. The intelligence of the system will be highlighted thanks to its 4 route calculation algorithms (flexible, with assignment wheel, by regular bus and bus on demand). Finally, two case studies will be presented: the first on an on-demand bus line in a sector of the city of Terrassa (220,000 inhabitants), operated by 92 local taxi drivers, and the second, in the municipality of Lliçà de Vall (6,700 inhabitants), where a flexible transport system operates with 1 vehicle.
