Smart Commuting

Smart and Mobile Work in Growth Regions

At a glance


This project explores new ways of combining work and life with new intelligent transport system

services and new concepts for supporting sustainable commuting. The mobility of workforce is

increasing due to technology development, commuting and the nature of work. This has many

consequences as long commuting may decrease the productivity of work and leave less time for

relaxation. Cities also have to address commuting when planning technical solutions, developing

services and calculating finance schemes. The first objective of this project is to identify the changing

needs of mobile workers. The second objective is to increase the sustainability of mobility by supporting

the implementation of sustainable and intelligent transportation services. The consortium will collect

data by observations, surveys, interviews and workshops in Austria, Finland and Switzerland to evaluate

how these new services meet the evolving needs of mobile workers. In addition, we will use simulations

to provide decision support for stakeholders address urban planning and governance structures

challenges. Implementations in large commuting areas are pivotal aspects of this project.

Implementations in different areas help to scale up our partners’ operations, get experiences about the

needs of users and also discover some common ground for governance and city planning policies.
