TMaaS launches Open Call for Replicator Cities worldwide

Project : TMaaS - Traffic Management as a Service
City : Ghent
Short description
TMaaS launched a call for cities worldwide to submit their applications to join the TMaaS Replicator City Programme. In this programme, which will launch this autumn, three selected cities will have the opportunity to work with the TMaaS team on the creation of their own local TMaaS dashboard and tackle mobility problems in their city. Thanks to the Replicator City Programme the TMaaS team will be able to share the knowledge and experience of cloud-based mobility management for cities that it acquires during the project with other cities, and it will also be able to take up the challenge of testing the dashboard in an environment that may be completely different from the situation in Ghent.
