Mode & Trip Time Advice (MTTA)
The objective of Mode & Trip Time Advice is to create an eco-friendlier, energy-efficient and more comfortable driving or travelling experience.
Taking into account various stakeholders’ views, a list of business model blueprints that address current or future challenges of urban areas, together with their operating and value-capture scenarios depicting the inner-workings of the business models, and the exchange of costs-benefits among stakeholders, have been created for the Mode & Trip Time Advice service.
