Mexico and Germany work for a new mobility app
Mexico City Mobility App
Mexico City has a population of almost 20 million people! In fact, it is the 4th most populous city in the world. Besides the improvement of beltways and highways, providing mobility to this number of people every day is a complicated task.
To improve the mobility of inhabitants within large cities, and emerging populations in the nation, the Ministry of Communications and Transportation (SCT) has decided to create the National Base Model of Transport and Logistic.
This sophisticated application will improve the future mobile development of Mexico. Through this app, concessionaires, public entities and authorities will have an easy access to important information such as transport systems, zone reports, population figures, and surveys.
This new tool has two main purposes: One, to improve and develop the transportation system in large cities across Mexico, as well as promoting the flow of investments and two, to open the market for technological research. How will this last purpose be fully achieved? Simple. The app will increase local studies and evaluation on Mexico’s transport systems and infrastructure, therefore allow the easy access to more information and data needed for investors to choose Mexico as a business port.
The project will employ over 150 researches and programmers to develop this software. All of them will be working side by side with the German company PTV Group Latin America, an enterprise that gives technologic advice across 120 countries.
According to the Director of PTV Group Latin America, Vicente Torres Garibay, the National Base Model of Transport and Logistic will enable better decisions to develop, integrate and modify the construction strategies for the next 20 years, therefore improving the overall infrastructure of Mexico’s largest cities.
The first stage of this project will be presented in about eight months from now. The preview will include a searching motor similar to the one that the National Institute of Statistics, Geography and Information Technology (INEGI) uses.
With this app, Mexico will be one step forward to develop more and better mobility strategies for its cities.
