New urban mobility schemes are rapidly evolving due to social, economic and technological changes. Against this backdrop, the Galileo navigation system, which is a public service funded by the EU, can deliver new accuracy and reliability for location-dependent services that get people where they need to go.
The Hellenic Institute of Transport is part of the Center for Research and Technology Hellas. Under the Galileo project, which encompasses a number of “Mobility as a Service”-oriented pilots, the institute is coordinating a pilot study in Thessaloniki, where citizens have the option to share a taxi with the help of a mobile phone app.
