OTN partner Issy Media is proud to be among the key opinion formers who influenced Paris Region Transport Agency's (STIF's) decision to launch its first Open Data portal in early November 2015. Almost 30 datasets for public transport lines, stops, stations and timetables were made available to the public on the day STIF's portal was launched, with many more to be added in due course.
Identified by the European Commission and the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Technology as one of the 15 European cities part of a Smart City strategy, Issy was invited by Leshan (China) to support it.
A Parisian driver spends on average 55 hours a year in a traffic jam. The average for Brussels is 83, for London it’s 82, for Antwerp 78 and for Stuttgart 60. At the same time, public transport is becoming more crowded and less convenient for commuters. What can be done?
To answer this question and more, the City of Issy-les-Moulineaux organised a conference on smart mobility within a framework of Future en Sein, Europe’s largest event dedicated to transport and innovation.
