MODUM IS GOING TO BE DEPLOYED IN THE CITY OF COVENTRY 

In light of the freshly-started EC HoPE project, the MODUM system will also be deployed in the city of Coventry, UK which is considered to be Heart of England. The aim of HoPE is to construct a smart multi-modal journey planner, with the extra benefit of integrated fare management. At current, negotiations are taking place as to what specific aspects of MODUM will be implemented within the HoPE field trials. The added bonus of an integrated ticketing service for public transport will help both end-users as well as the local Coventry City Council. More specifically, they have identified a congested corridor for study and trialing, lending their support by means of network monitoring and management, and data feeds (both existing ones and newly-planned ones). The proposed multi-modal options are bus, tram, train, metro, taxi, electric car, bicycles, and walking. Using this integrated system, the City Council aims to diminish congestion in the area, as well as provide better, more accurate and up-to-date information to its commuters. In addition, the Coventry implementation aids in proving that the MODUM solution is scalable and versatile, including linking to other data-sources besides the existing trial sites in Nottingham and Sofia.
