Mobility is one of the most difficult topics to face in large metropolitan areas like Dallas. It involves both environmental and economic aspects and needs both high- tech and sustainable people behaviors. Smart Mobility+ responds to the transportation needs of the City's people and businesses, addresses climate change, advances social equity and environmental justice, and supports economic and community development.
Smart Mobility+ includes smart solutions to improve, innovate, and visualize reliability, efficiency, and access to public and private transportation and the associated support infrastructure to address the strain population growth places on the transit systems.
Smart Mobility+ Objectives
- The interactive multimodal transit navigation interface will provide route options that consider both private and public transit modes such as private vehicles, parking availability, public transit, ride sharing, connected vehicles, bike sharing, and walking and the transfer between different modes.
Intelligent Insights and Congestion Reduction
- Metrics on the most common commuter routes including bicycle and pedestrian, last mile transit, mass transit, etc., should be measured to enable further optimization of alternative commuters on those routes and track greenhouse gas emission savings.
- Implement a traffic signal ecosystem that can be adapted to changing situational needs in near real time to improve efficiency and safety of transport in non-standard circumstances, e.g., enabling traffic management to dynamically update traffic signal timing during an accident scenario.
- Use smart technology and data to increase safety for bicycle commuters, reduce the number of cyclist accidents and provide valuable inputs to city planning.
