The New Cities Foundation releases findings from a study on Connected Commuting based on a year-long pilot in San Jose, California. The results will help cities, mobile application developers and businesses all over the world better understand how real-time social networking among commuters can improve traffic management and enhance the overall commuting experience in both public and private transport. The recommendations made in the report are easily implementable, scalable and replicable across a wide range of metropolitan areas. This project, the first of its kind, was led by the New Cities Foundation in close partnership with Ericsson and with San Jose’s Department of Transportation and the University of California CITRIS. The study used data from two of the most innovative commuter smartphone applications, Waze and Roadify.
