Potential suppliers working on AI4Cities mobility-related solutions can make use of the data sources listed below. This is a non-exhaustive list of the freely avaibale open source data in in each AI4Cities city. The list will be updated throughout the project, as more data becomes available.

1. Could you clarify the need for MaaS in Stavanger?
A: We are looking to potentially testing Mobility as a Service (MaaS) solutions. Quite a few mobility solutions have been introduced, or will be introduced in Stavanger (and the region around). Kolumbus (the local transport authority) have included city-bikes, busses, boats/ferries and trains in one digital solution, but there is still some way to go to get the best out of all the modes of transport. A MaaS solution that includes the available modes of transport, and that makes them function as a more dynamic whole would be really interesting to test for Stavanger and Kolumbus. Public transport, which in Stavanger consists of busses, boats and a rail line, could become a much more attractive alternative to driving a car if more of the different modes of transport are bound together by a solution, and in a way that will make passengers able to dynamically plan and use the different modes in an effective way. Using different modes of transport will be a much more attractive if it is easy to plan and carry through. Where are the different means of transport? How can we easily find them? How can we use them and combine them, and how fast will we be able to travel between different places/modes of transport? What are the best routes, and what are the best routes if we need to re-plan? There are many different modes of transport in use in Stavanger. In the data section above you will find an overview from Kolumbus. In addition to this there are also private suppliers of e-scooters, car-sharing services and more.
