Promotion of sustainable mobility has become a major goal in Europe aimed at rationalizing the exploitation of natural resources and reducing the environmental impacts of mobility. Continuously raising congestion levels are the cradle for an evolution towards a more sustainable transportation. It is clear that current developments in ICT can contribute to this objective, however at this moment the possibilities of ICT are not fully utilized in the public transit sector. Research has shown that ICT is mainly being used to make a fixed transit system more efficient, but the transit system itself is never questioned. The added value of the ERA-NET proposal is to reverse this point of view.
