Short description: The increasing complexity in finding the optimum solution getting to work overwhelms commuters. Especially hidden costs, various mobility modes and dynamic prices decrease the decision transparency. Developing a user centered cost calculating tool shall help commuters making well informed decisions.
Market potential: Next to commuters themselves, another target group can be cities who want to evaluate attractiveness of their public transport and other mobility offers, and potential for optimizing infrastructutre.
Timing: The solution can be integrated as soon as it is available.
Desired result: The solution consists of a user-centric cost accounting system for rural commuters, which compares different intermodal mobility options based on quantitative key figures like price, emissions and travel time. The integration of commuter tax allowance and tariff zones in the solution is necessary.
Information on challenge owner: Mid-Cap (250-3,000 staff).
Market presence of challenge owner: Global presence.
