BIISY Bikes in Big Cities
Sustainable multi-modal-trip-planner for urban commuters.
The European program Frontier Cities aimed to support projects promoting sustainable urban mobility. In collaboration with Oltan SrL, Amigo climate was granted EU-FP7 funds to develop a multi-modal-trip-planner for urban commuters. The outcome of the project is BIISY, a smartphone application that calculates biking routes and integrates them with public transport solutions including buses, subway, trains and walking. Amigo developed the back-end of the application: an open-source routing algorithm combined with open datasets about local public transport and street mapping. It computes the best routes based on real-time public transport data, recurrent bike paths and crowd-sourced preferences. BIISY was developed specifically for the city of Rome and it is available on Google Play Store.
