Does Public Transportation have a future?

“Yes”, because our cities can only live with PT. Smart Cities are efficient, sustainable and digital connected. This is what PT stands for:

  • the space is used 5 to 50 times more efficient
  • PT is 2 times more climate friendly than the car
  • PT is connecting itself and with his customers through a mobility platform “Mobility inside”.
