Cities in developing and emerging countries are experiencing high growth rates – with increasing problems for the environment and urban quality of life. The TUMI Initiative (Transformative Urban Mobility Initiative), which is made up of international partners, is trying to counter this development with innovative mobility concepts. This is also the case in Colombia’s capital Bogotá, where the initiative is piloting initial approaches together with the CAF (Development Bank for Latin America).
The central goal of the project is to establish the TUMI Mobility Data Hub, which will bring together all relevant traffic data and make it available to all actors in Bogotá’s traffic and urban planning.
Digital data plays an essential role in modern mobility concepts: Real-time information about movement patterns and the use of existing transport infrastructure can be used to make more efficient and sustainable decisions, which ultimately help to avoid traffic congestion and reduce emissions.
