Demand Responsive Extended Area Mobility Services

The project’s main goal is to study a web-based information system prototype for the planning and the integrated management of traditional and innovative mobility services in Milano. DREAMS has been financed by the Milano Municipality and the Environment Ministry.

The core of the system is the travel planner module, which proposes a set of travel solutions for a specific trip taking into account several transportation modes and systems, including: mobility with private cars using the road network and the park system, the local public transportation, the taxi services, and flexible services (demand responsive transport, car-pooling, and car sharing). Specific software tools and algorithms have been implemented to support the real time management of demand responsive transport services and car-pooling.
