|GP: On-line multi-modal information in Rome - Italy|
INFOPOINT is the internet accessible tool developed by ATAC that combines PT and Park&Ride routing calculations, multimodal choices, time table information, search of addresses, points of interest, etc. Within MIRACLES, it has been improved, especially the sections on multimodal choices; information can now be accessed also through mobile devices.
Objectives/ Innovative Aspects
ATAC, the local Agency for Mobility in Rome, has taken advantage of the CIVITAS initiative to improve the information provided via the web through INFOPOINT. This is the internet accessible tool developed by ATAC, that combines PT and Park & Ride routing calculations, multimodal choices, time table information, search of addresses, points of interest, etc.
To improve Public Transport a high level of information has to be provided.
During the first two years of the MIRACLES Project, ATAC worked to enrich the information already provided on the web-site through INFOPOINT, by improving the sections on public transport systems and multimodal choices.
Further improvements to and development of the WAP service are being implemented. This will lead to the achievement of: a new multi-protocol interface (WAP2, XHTML, I-MODE), a new multidevice (mobile phones, PDA, Smartphone, ecc) and multi-lingual (5 languages) interface.
The above project is part of the CIVITAS - MIRACLES initiative.
