Abstract

Cities have been driving human development for thousands of years and they remain at the heart of our economy today. Given that today more than half of the population lives in cities, it is necessary to continuously improve the services offered to transport and proceed in the deployment of ICT systems. It is necessary that the passenger is increasingly seen as a key partner and that the services offered is continuously improved. The passenger is still just a human and so his requirements are different. It is therefore essential to continue research that is aimed at determining the real demand for services and classification of different types of passengers and their requirements and to quantify them. The paper aims to present a concept of an infomobility plan. The general objective of the infomobility plan is to improve the coordination in promoting, planning and operating ICT in public transport to provide better promotion of policies that foster co-modality through the use of ICT
