Cities can now provide their inhabitants and visitors with a new mobile application, City App from PTV Group. Whether looking for tourist information, events, transport information or the latest mobility options, users can access all the information about their city – on a single app.
PTV Group developed the initial city app for Karlsruhe, Germany. The app has been available free of charge since 2014, and in April 2015, the product expanded to include real-time transport information. The latest updates on traffic, roadworks, parking spaces and park-and-ride options are regularly uploaded along with corresponding public transport timetables.
“City App helps agencies be more responsive to citizens,” said Steve Perone, president, traffic software, PTV Group. “This new solution can be customized to each city’s need, enabling public agencies to leverage their information across business sectors.”
PTV Group debuted the new app at the 2015 International
Transport Forum in Leipzig, Germany, in May.
