Challenge / Goal

One of the factors contributing to a lower demand for public transport is the uncertainty about the arrival time. This needs to be fixed if public transportation services are to become more reliable alternatives to private transport mobility options. 


To minimise this problem, the municipal transport services of Coimbra have implemented an innovative, low-carbon solution, to provide real-time information to passengers at some of the city's bus stops. The panels consist of a solar powered e-paper technology that shows in real-time the waiting time until the next buses, and also their respective line. The buses have installed a GPS that communicates with a platform real-time location system.

Finally, an open data platform will be implemented, which includes information in real-time allowing its use by other entities, as well as allowing the feeding of applications that will be developed at the initiative of the SMTUC "Serviços Municipalizados de Transportes Urbanos de Coimbra".
