Public Transport

There are a number of challenges that public transport finds itself addressing to enhance its competition in relation to potential users. These include the offer of solutions that are adequate to the requirements of erratic mobility and services tailored to the different user targets, improvement of quality in terms of comfort of the vehicles, reliability and enhanced performance, added value services for the user and integration with other modes of transport (feeder services and last mile in urban areas, and rail services in extra-urban areas. In order to do this, public transport has to overcome its current image as a “weak” service, restricted to the demands of disadvantaged users, characterised by an inefficient use of the vehicles and underuse in broad time slots.
The requalification and differentiation of public transport is based on the following operations:
– extension of reserved lanes and strengthening of priority axes;
– use of ITS systems and management of the systems that these systems support;
– integration with other modes of transport (feeder services such as bike sharing, bike stations, etc., flexible intermediate services: services on demand, taxi sharing etc.) to boost co-modality).
In this area, MemEx boasts consolidated experience in the design of intermediate and flexible services, in the integration of these into the overall chain of the public transport supply, and in the design of ITS systems for the management and coordination of the said services (booking centre and management of flexible services). Moreover, with the support of its partners, MemEx can integrate the evaluation of the impact on private traffic into the design of the collective transport services and the priority lanes.
