BIISY Bikes in Big Cities

Sustainable multi-modal-trip-planner for urban commuters.

The European program Frontier Cities aimed to support projects promoting sustainable urban mobility. In collaboration with Oltan SrL, Amigo climate was granted EU-FP7 funds to develop a multi-modal-trip-planner for urban commuters. The outcome of the project is BIISY, a smartphone application that calculates biking routes and integrates them with public transport solutions including buses, subway, trains and walking. Amigo developed the back-end of the application: an open-source routing algorithm combined with open datasets about local public transport and street mapping. It computes the best routes based on real-time public transport data, recurrent bike paths and crowd-sourced preferences. BIISY was developed specifically for the city of Rome and it is available on Google Play Store.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s FP7 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 632853.Europe
