Then sign up today for our pilot program and test a new and improved traffic and navigation service. This pilot is part of Code the Streets, a joint effort of cities, service providers and science to stimulate drivers to choose social route options to improve the liveability of urban space.
As metropolitan areas continue to grow, so do traffic related issues such as congestion, crowded streets, safety concerns, air pollution, and increasing pressure on fragile infrastructure. Cities are faced with the challenge of finding better ways to manage urban mobility. Code the Streets supports cities with this challenge by creating a basis for new digital mobility management tools. In this project, we are testing the information chain between cities and mobility providers which enable cities to communicate information about the desired use of the public space with service providers and their residents and visitors.
The Social Route
Cities and service providers share and integrate information about school zones, congestion and environmental zones to the driver’s navigation experience. By adding specific information, we stimulate drivers to choose an alternative route with wider collective benefits, the “social route”. Starting in Autumn, we will be running pilot programs testing the application in Amsterdam and Helsinki.
Cities and Partners
By connecting people, commodities and data, both physically and digitally, the City of Amsterdam is developing solutions for a connected city, keeping the city inclusive, liveable and attractive.
Helsinki is very keen to act as a platform and as a test-bed for all new innovative mobility. Helsinki has a very strong track record as it comes to organizing the most innovative testing within the real world conditions.
Code the Streets is an EIT Urban Mobility project bringing together partners from Amsterdam and Helsinki to work on innovative solutions for public space and mobility management.
