MaaS in Barcelona: 4 scenarios and 4 key findings

Barcelona: the road to Mobility as a Service

Estimated reading time: 3 minutes

By introducing Mobility as a Service (MaaS), operators need to make sure the ride pooling system benefits the modal split in a city instead of competing with it. For passengers this means they can book and pay all mobility services with just one app, which suggests to them the best route and mode of transport for their journey.… Read more

PTV Epics in PTV Vissim – model based local traffic signal control for public transport prioritisation (with free demo version)

PTV Epics is specifically designed to reduce traffic planning effort.

The cars had begun stacking up at the intersection, and there is no turning back. Traffic congestion is a big problem for everyone, especially within the city. But what can be done? Maybe take a second off at the red-light timer?Read more

We usually associate cableways with transporting people in areas with rough terrain, for overcoming large height differences or as a tourist attraction. However, for a few years now they have increasingly been used as a means of urban transport. And exactly like classic means of transport such as buses, cars and trams, they and their passengers can be modelled with the microsimulation software PTV Vissim and the microscopic pedestrian simulation tool PTV Viswalk.Read more
