Self-optimizing cities. Utopia?The holistic mobility service organised by the city instead of an individual transport operator is a first step in realizing smarter urban mobility. It gives democratised access for transport providers and allow users to take better informed decisions, as well as help city to understand user preferences and provide infrastructural and legal adaptations. Trafi, a technology platform for mobility, and BVG, the main public transport company in Berlin, are forming a new partnership aimed at connecting the entire mobility system in the city. This is the first time that a European city the size of Berlin integrates an entire mobility network, spanning across public and private operators, in order to make it easier for people to access and use different types of transport. The application will include all different types of transportation and offer a one-stop shop for people traveling in Berlin.
