‘Smart’ Solutions to Reduce Congestion and Emissions

Cell phone warnings about traffic jams, a network management center to monitor all of Moscow’s transportation activities in real time and metro passes that also work on commuter trains are just a few services that city authorities are preparing to launch in their efforts to ease congestion.
Moscow’s transportation officials presented an ambitious roadmap of how public transport will function in the city at the Smart City of the Future forum this week. The plans rely heavily on the use of mobile communications platforms and synchronizing existing services.
