City Releases Seamless Mobility RFP

17 October 2017 - 12:00:00 AM
Today the City of Cincinnati announced a request for proposals (RFP) to bring seamless mobility and personalized transit optimization through the development of a web-based, fully mobile friendly tool.
 
“This is an opportunity for Cincinnati to take the next step toward being a smart city,” said City Manager Harry Black. “Cincinnati is a city of innovators and we want to harness their knowledge and expertise to drive us forward."
 
City Manager Black, the Office of Performance and Data Analytics and the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) announced the RFP at the Regional Smart Cities Initiative’s Midwest IoT Showcase and Smart Regions Conference held at BB&T Arena on the campus of Northern Kentucky University.
 
The RFP asks developers to combine transportation data from various providers such as SORTA, TANK, Redbike, and others, into a web-based tool that allows users to personalize their trip planning and transit choices. This personalization is based on user preferences including, but not limited to:
 
•     Cost
•     Public Transit
•     Number of stops
•     Environmental concerns
•     Healthy lifestyles
 
The purpose of this opportunity is to find a solution that can promote innovation and solve for an optimized personal mobility experience. This solution can also serve as a data gathering tool to better understand the travel patterns and tendencies of residents and visitors alike to inform decision making.
