After Paris, London, Los Angeles, Tokyo and Mexico City, it’s now Monaco’s turn to launch Citymapper, a free mobile application that guides the user through city trips. Used by more than 20 million users worldwide, the app prioritises walking and alternative transportation to the automobile. The project is part of the #ExtendedMonaco program, aiming to better inform users of their transport options.
“With Citymapper, it is possible to view alternative route options to get from point A to point B in the Principality, as well as from and to the country, from the Italian border to Nice Airport. The proposed travel scenarios include walking, but also and above all, public transport available locally,” said Georges Gambarini, Smart City program manager at the Direction of Development of Digital Uses (DDUN).
The multilingual application is useful to Monaco residents but also to commuters and tourists. “In addition to allowing you to plan routes and choose in real time the best shared mobility solution, access real-time information (schedule, delay, alert), and be guided on a journey through geolocation, the CityMapper app presents a major innovation; the availability, in real time, of parking spaces in all car parks in the Principality.”
“The implementation of this tool is part of a series of projects aimed at improving the infrastructure and mobility experience in the country, such as the autonomous shuttle and the new Monabike service. It is connected to a more global vision, the aim of smart mobility serving the quality of life of users,” Mr Gambarini said.
