Commuting is already easy in the Gothenburg region, and it is about to get even better. People who live outside the city can park free at Västtrafik’s park-and-rides and take public transport the rest of the way. Västtrafik is collaborating with Innovation Zone, Cybercom’s machine learning specialists and doctoral students to predict availability at the park-and-rides. We use historical information about use of the parking spaces and add in factors like weather forecasts and holiday calendars. The goal is a service that helps commuters decide whether to take the car into the city or leave it behind.
Goal 11: Sustainable cities and communities. The goal is aimed at making cities and communities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable. Västtrafik is reducing congestion and providing more accessible and sustainable public transport in the Gothenburg region.
