Open data transport will soon be set up (Montacer Hassani)

“An open data transport will soon be set up and four mobile transport applications have already been put in place with the Electronic Administration Unit,” said Saturday Transport Ministry Director-General Montacer Hassani.

Taking part in the 4th international e-governance conference EGOV 2017, organised in Hammamet on April 28-30, at the initiative of the Tunisian Management Science Soceity on the theme “Smart Cities and Information Systems,” he pointed out that ” the implementation of smart transport systems is a key focus of the Transport Ministry’s strategy, as set out in the 2016-2020 development plan.”

“Smart transport systems should be at heart of any transport sector development strategy given their ability to reinforce the competitiveness and attractiveness of public transport, improve the quality of services, reduce energy consumption and optimise supply to meet increased demand,” he added.

Among the projects launched by the Ministry in this regard, Hassani also cited “the establishment of a passenger information system and interoperable ticketing. In this regard, the integration of ticketing systems (magnetic card, smart card, est.) in Greater Tunis is a priority for the Ministry. “A tariff study for Greater Tunis funded by the French Development Agency (AFD) is also being conducted,” he specified.

However, he lamented, “the legislation governing the transport sector is very old and there is no trace of any possibility of migrating to smart transport systems, and that is why, lobbying is needed to put pressure on decision-makers to fit into the “smart” and revise texts in this regard.”
