What we do

Consortium

TMaaS (Traffic Management as a Service) is a partnership between the City of Ghent (Belgium), Be-Mobile, De Staatse Ruiter, European Passengers Federation, Ghent University, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, TomTom Location Technology Germany, TomTom Belgium and Waylay. This project is co-financed by the European Regional and Development Fund through the Urban Innovative Actions Initiative.

The City of Ghent

The City of Ghent has pursued a sustainable mobility policy for the city for more than 40 years. This resulted, among other things, in the further expansion of the large pedestrian area in the historic center.

In addition, in April 2017, all traffic axes were cut through the city to prevent car traffic from passing through the city center.

The city now plans to intensify its focus on multimodal travel. The realization of a multimodal traffic center to inform citizens is a key element of the most recent mobility plan of the City of Ghent (Strategic Mobility Vision 2030).

Vision


TMaaS is an unique partnership between the public and private sector. Our aim is to create data driven mobility management tools for traffic operators and citizens.
We are proud to present LINK, our latest mobility dashboard for the City of Ghent and other cities to follow.

Why?

In recent years an increasing number of cities have considered ways to enhance their citizens’ mobility and their quality of life, while simultaneously striving to reduce the number of accidents, the amount of traffic jams and pollution. Because of a lack of resources, in terms of personnel, budget or infrastructure, small and medium-sized cities have not yet been able to participate in this type of urban mobility management. Nevertheless, they also feel the need to better serve their citizens’ mobility needs in the digital age. Even if the city can invest time, money and effort in traffic management, they find that the existing solutions are predominantly focused on motorized traffic. These technologies are therefore not entirely suitable to stimulate the use of public transport or other sustainable alternatives.
