A platform for secure payments and smart multimodal trip planning

The final conference took place 9 May 2017. The agenda and presentations can be found on the official project website.

The main purpose of the HoPE project is to advance the role of public transportation systems through an open platform. This allows to combine the management of fare payments with Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS). The overall platform is user-oriented, making them aware about public transport and eco-mobility. It will also provide them with a significant mix of services including info-mobility, trip planning, ticket reservation, fare calculation and mobile payments. As such, HoPE is a holistic system, focussing the attention on the larger whole and how all its parts are interconnected.

The HoPE platform will implement secure and accessible payment procedures for fares, and provides travellers with smart trip planning. For the latter we’ll enhance one or more key metrics associated to their trip (fare, duration, emissions).

The HoPE platform will be piloted and tested in three European cities (Coventry, Athens, Basque Country) and will be applied to a wide set of local and regional transport means (buses, undergrounds, railway lines, car-sharing, bike sharing, etc.).

TML is leading the work package on dissemination, supports the consortium with the creation of business development plans, and provides a tight liaison with the EC FP7 MODUM project which we coordinate.
