Energy firm Forces Elèctriques d’Andorra has partnered with Siemens Mobility subsidiaries HaCon and eos.uptrade to develop a multi-modal transportation planning application.

The application will be launched in three phases. It will include buses, electric bike-sharing, charging points for electric vehicles, and on and off street parking.

Expected to be made available from this year, the app will enable riders to view and plan journeys in real-time and manage payments across the various modes.

According to Siemens, the new tool will also enable transport authorities to access data in real-time to monitor the quality and efficiency of service.

Siemens Mobility CEO Michael Peter said: “Cities are increasingly understanding the importance of connecting different modes of transportation to ensure a seamless transition for passengers from the first mile to the last mile, improving passenger experience.

“These platforms not only make it easier for passengers to plan and pay for transportation, but also help cities promote sustainable transport.”

The application will be built on a platform created by HaCon.

HaCon’s apps and web-based solutions receive more than 100 million requests from passengers to improve their mobility choices.

The initiative supports Andorra’s sustainability goals such as slashing of carbon emissions, alongside promoting public and multimodal transport.

In March, Siemens Mobility won a contract to upgrade the Northern Ireland’s Department for Infrastructure’s (DfI) existing traffic management systems, including maintenance of the existing intelligent transportation systems (ITS).

Siemens Mobility specialises in rolling stock, rail automation and electrification, turnkey systems, intelligent traffic systems, as well as related services.
