In a constantly evolving urban context, the efficient management of urban space represents a major challenge for municipalities. Among the challenges faced by local authorities, the collection and updating of mobility data play a crucial role. It is in this context that MobiClic emerges as a promising solution, offering a participatory approach to address these data management and urban mobility challenges.

Here are just a few of the concrete examples of use.

Parking optimization

Imagine a city where finding a parking spot is a daily challenge for many citizens. Thanks to MobiClic, residents can contribute to a collaborative mapping of available parking zones. By taking pictures of parking signs, users feed a real-time database on available parking spots, allowing for more efficient car trip planning.

Journey planning

Consider the case of a municipality eager to encourage the use of public transportation. With MobiClic, citizens can report the most frequented bus stops as well as peak hours, thus facilitating journey planning for users. By collecting data on the congestion at bus stops, local authorities can also adjust schedules and routes to meet the needs of the citizens.

In the context of promoting more sustainable modes of transportation, MobiClic can also play a crucial role. Users can report existing cycling infrastructures, as well as areas where improvements are necessary to ensure the safety of cyclists. These data can then be used by municipalities to plan and implement infrastructure projects tailored to the needs of cyclists and pedestrians.

By involving citizens in updating mobility data, MobiClic fosters civic engagement and strengthens the connection between residents and their city.

By mobilizing the skills and knowledge of citizens, municipalities can ensure more effective and adapted management of urban space.
