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 increased pressure on fragile infrastructure.
Cities face 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 test the information chain between cities and mobility providers. The idea is to enable cities to communicate information about the desired use of the public space.
The Social Route
Cities and service providers share and integrate information about school zones, congestion and environmental zones into the driver’s navigation app. Adding this specific information stimulates drivers to choose an alternative route with wider collective benefits, the “social route”. We run pilot programs testing the app in Amsterdam and Helsinki.
Cities and Partners
Amsterdam is developing solutions for a connected city by linking people and data, staying inclusive, liveable, and attractive.
Helsinki is keen to act as a platform and a test-bed for new innovative mobility. The city has a strong track record of organizing innovative testing within real-world conditions.
Code the Streets is an EIT Urban Mobility project that brings together partners from Amsterdam and Helsinki. They work on innovative solutions for public space and mobility management.
