The Co-Cities Forum covers a group of cities and regions, traffic information service providers, technology companies and public authorities across Europe with the objective to improve the availability of real-time travel information. Based on an open source interface to exchange data between cities and/or regions you can provide transport and mobility related information services to different traffic information service providers. The Co-Cities Forum is open to new members.
High quality multimodal transport information services for regular travellers and tourists are one important element for promoting sustainable modes of transport. It also helps to make a shift to sustainable and eco efficient mobility forms in urban areas. Co-Cities developed a commonly agreed interface (CAI) where various real time data for user friendly and up to date traffic information services can be merged and provided as one service on different platforms and end user devices and environments.
The benefits of participating in the Co-Cities Forum are:
For Service Providers / technical partners:
