The public transportation ecosystem of each European city is a highly complex environment in which end-user’s travelling needs are put in its core. This ecosystem is exceedingly depended on the development of new technologies that constantly transform and shape user’s needs, infrastructure as well as public transport itself. To understand the digitalisation dynamic and speed of penetration of new technology into urban transportation system is a key priority for efficient planning of the infrastructure, sustainable use of public transport and appropriate addressing of users need. All this has a strong reverberation on business, economics and, foremost, environment.
As quickly as digitalisation permeates the transport environment, a prompt response has to be developed to grasp the opportunities and address the challenges that cutting-edge technologies bring into public transport sector. These are of diverse nature and intricacy.
