When it comes to creating sustainable smart cities, it is important to understand a uniqueness, what makes the community tick and keeps people happily and proudly living there. Through the Intelligent Transportation Systems, cities and communities can become smarter and more connected. It is not a simple task to understand what will be valuable for our cities and passengers.
Research on the transport habits of Polish citizens was carried out. Poles need to have more bus and train connections and better access to passenger information. 67.4% of respondents believe that better access to passenger information would affect their willingness to use public transport.*
Dysten took this information to heart and in 2019 will equip approximately 500 Polish stops, railway stations and interchanges with real-time passenger information displays.
