Coronavirus: Demand-Responsive Transport operators adapt their services with the help of Padam Mobility

Covid-19

Covid-19: in support of populations, Demand-Responsive operators adapt their services with the help of Padam Mobility.

In the context of the fight against the spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19), the land transport sector has to adapt in order to ensure continuity of service and the transportation of healthcare personnel, in compliance with the measures put in place by the government. The latter is reorganising to limit the movement of citizens to what is strictly necessary, under adequate sanitary conditions. Demand-Responsive Transport (DRT) is a flexible alternative that makes the most of the strengths of public transport. 

Cities are adapting their DRT service to the coronavirus context in France and Italy thanks to Padam Mobility’s technology

Faced with the health crisis and demand from cities and operators, Padam Mobility is adapting its Demand-Responsive Transport (DRT) solutions in France and Italy to ensure reduced travel for citizens and healthcare personnel and to limit vehicle density, both between passengers and between passengers and drivers.

TOD services in France in the context of the coronavirus
  • In Strasbourg, in the Grand-Est region which is the most affected by the epidemic in France, the Compagnie des Transports Strasbourgeois (CTS), in collaboration with Padam Mobility, is adapting its Flex’hop Z1 TAD service to the needs of hospital staff. By extending the service time slots and serving essential locations. From 26 March and until further notice, from 5 am to 10 pm every day, the service will also serve the Hautepierre Hospital and the Civil Hospital. During periods of confinement, the Flex’Hop mobile application is adapting to the massive reduction in the number of public transport users and is multiplying its DRT solutions. To make a reservation via the application, all you have to do is enter the date of your ride, the timetable and the number of passengers. It should be noted that in this period of health crisis and in order to respect the measures implemented for social distancing, the capacity of vehicles is limited to two people in addition to the driver, made possible by the limitation of the number of reservations available in the system. Passengers can also book their ride via www.cts-strasbourg.eu or the following toll-free number: 0 800 200 120.
  • In Saint-Omer, Pas-de-Calais, the Mouvéo service has adapted its Demand-Responsive Transport (DRT) service. Thanks to an optimization algorithm, Padam Mobility enables the number of buses to be adapted and a better coverage of the territory to enable more extensive travel in the region, where necessary.
  • In Lyon and on the Lyon Public Transport conventional and DRT networks (TCL), the Sytral (Lyon’s Public Transport Authority) has reduced the number of available seats in each bus to two. This initiative makes it possible to respect the 1-metre safety distance set by the government. Thanks to the flexibility of Padam Mobility’s solutions, Lyon’s Demand-Responsive transport allows everyone to be protected.
  • In Marne La Vallée, eastern Paris, Plus de Pep’s has adapted its DRT service to shut down routes to the market in times of coronavirus. Contrary to traditional public transport, changing the routes does not cause any delay or loss of time, quite the contrary. In fact, the Demand-Responsive Transport solutions developed by Padam Mobility and based on artificial intelligence, allow route optimisation and greater flexibility.
Padam Mobility’s TAD solutions in Italy in the context of coronavirus

In Padua, Veneto, at the epicentre of the epidemic in Italy, Busitalia has modified its TAD service originally designed to help students travel at night. Since 17 March and until further notice, in order to help the population and guarantee the most urgent rides, Padam Mobility, in collaboration with Busitalia Veneto and the city of Padua, have agreed to extend the service’s timetable from 6 a.m. to midnight every day. In addition, it has been agreed to set up a website so that users can book a DRT online if they do not have a smartphone to do so via the Padam Mobility mobile application.

Padam Mobility is thinking about the transport of tomorrow

In times of coronavirus, Padam Mobility organizes itself internally to ensure business continuity in the best possible conditions: generalized home-office, virtual coffee machine open to all, or even webinar trainings to facilitate remote meetings. All this is done with a view to transparency and responsiveness. Thanks to accessible and economical technologies, Padam Mobility continues its commitment to develop more inclusive and mobile solutions that adapt to tomorrow’s world, post Covid-19. More agile and more supportive.  More than ever, Dynamic Demand-Responsive Transport solutions are proving their efficiency and their ability to adapt to all contexts.

Padam Mobility meets elected officials and users of La Saire

Réunion publique information La Saire

Public information meeting: on January 30, 2020, Padam Mobility, local elected officials and users of La Saire (Le Cotentin, Normandy) met to take stock of the excellent results of the La Saire TAD Demand-Responsive Transport service.

Very encouraging feedbacks

The La Saire TAD DRT service has been very successful. It registered new users every day for around 1,000 trips made each month. Its ridership remained in strong increase and its pooling rate was close to 60%, which is very appreciable in a rural area. Finally, users rated the service on average 4.7 / 5.

Mothers and youngsters are the most satisfied

I think I can speak on behalf of all the mothers in the room who no longer need to bring their children to school, you have changed our lives at La Saire!”. A mother present in the audience.

The service is very practical and very easy to use”. A teenage girl present in the audience.

A service planned to restart and expand

The elected representatives of the Urban Community of Le Cotentin announced that they were studying very closely the follow-ups that could be given to the service. The chances that the service will restart and be extended to new areas in 2020 are great, but the decision must be submitted to the next Community Council for approval. Padam Mobility could continue to optimize its solutions and make them even more suited to the rural characteristics of the La Saire territory.

A DRT service like La Saire TAD has the potential to revive local life. We talked to the users and they told us that it made all the difference, especially for young people. The latter sometimes had no mobility alternative. We can also think of the tourists who get to Cherbourg train station and cannot move without a car to visit this wonderful region. We hope that the restart of the service and its extension will stimulate a real local dynamic and continue to address certain use cases and specific mobility needs”. Andreas Dieryck, Product Manager at Padam Mobility, present at the public information meeting.

A time of exchange between local elected representatives, the media, users and Padam Mobility

The public information meeting organized at the Digosville municipal hall brought together around fifty people. It was preceded by a press point with local correspondents (La Presse de la Manche, Ouest France and La Manche Libre). This was followed by a presentation of local elected officials: Noël Lefèvre, Transport and Mobilities Vice-President at Urban Community, mayor of Saint-Jacques-de-Néhou; Arnaud Catherine, delegate councilor for urban transportation of the Urban Community and Deputy Mayor of Cherbourg-en-Cotentin, Serge Martin, mayor of Digosville; Evelyne Mouchel, mayor of Mesnil-au-Val; Carole Gosswiller, Deputy Mayor of Bretteville and the Mayor of Bretteville, Pierre Philippart. Keolis (transit operator of the Zéphir network) was also present in the person of Romain Dandois, Marketing Manager.

This public information meeting enabled Padam Mobility to once again present its Demand-Responsive Transport solutions and in particular its optimization algorithms based on artificial intelligence and its user interfaces: application, booking website and call center. The meeting allowed to take stock of the level of deployment of Padam Mobility technology in France and abroad but also to answer questions from citizens on the La Saire TAD network, inaugurated in July 2019 for a first six-month experiment .

Padam Mobility keeps deploying its DRT in the Paris region

Transport à la Demande Ile-de-France
With its Demand-Responsive Transport (DRT) solutions, Padam Mobility keeps expanding in Île-de-France and is helping the Paris region to reduce the environmental footprint.

Also known as the “ecological footprint”, the environmental footprint is an indicator that measures the impact of human activities on the environment. Among other greenhouse gas emitting sectors, the transportation one has real ecological repercussions on the atmosphere. In addition to having a harmful impact on nature, pollution from car traffic is also harmful to health. Private cars remains the preferred means of transportation for French people for their short trips, mostly for home-to-work trips. According to a report written in 2018 by the Réseau Action Climat entitled “Transports et Pollutions”, the share of private vehicle use in France is 65% for daily trips (and long journeys), to the detriment of other types of transport mode that are more ecological.

In densely populated areas, road traffic generates very high carbon monoxide emissions. To limit these releases that poison air quality, we must rethink the ways of moving. Committed since its creation to the development of greener and more responsible mobility, Padam Mobility has incorporated the ecological issue into its DNA from its beginnings.

With its dynamic Demand-Responsive Transport (DRT) solutions based on Artificial Intelligence, Padam Mobility is using its expertise to revolutionize everyday mobility. Since the recent adoption of the French Mobility Law (called LOM) on November 19, 2019, Padam Mobility affirms its commitment to act alongside companies and communities to improve the mobility of employees and users between their home and their place of work.

By precisely adapting its offer to the nature and needs of its customers (transit operators and transport authorities, local authorities, companies, individuals, etc.), Padam Mobility questions historical transport patterns, and, among other things, the use of the private car as a mean of transportation.

Padam Mobility’s green figures

In response to the environmental challenge and the ecological transition, DRT is a response that is as relevant as effective in combating global warming. By designing smart, optimized and inexpensive mobility services, Padam Mobility contributes to:

  • Reducing the use of the private car thanks to alternative mobility solutions when conventional public transportation shows its limits. In this way, Padam Mobility has enabled its users to save around 82,000 km of car trips, equivalent to 16 tonnes of CO2 not emitted.
  • Optimizing existing transportation services with smart and dynamic solutions to avoid empty trips and calculate the best routes. In concrete terms, the average pooling rate of Padam Mobility DRT services is 80%. It can reach 92% on the best optimized services.
  • The development of solutions that encourage Padam Mobility’s users to adopt eco-gestures to think about their mobility and choose their itinerary according to their environmental impact. According to a study by Padam Mobility, indicating the most fuel-efficient itinerary to DRT users would, on average, save 500 kilos of CO2 per vehicle per year.
6 new territories in the Paris region covered by Padam Mobility’s DRT solutions

Already present in the Paris region (at Gally-Mauldre, Meaux, Bois-le-Roi, Centre-Essone, Vexin, Nangis, Perthes en Gatinais, Melun and La Ferté), Padam Mobility solutions will soon be deployed in 6 new territories covered by Île-de-France Mobilités (IDFM, the Paris region’s Public Transport Authority). For IDFM, Padam Mobility’s expertise meets the mobility challenges of the Île-de-France region by configuring DRT services adapted to local issues.

Effective from January 6, 2020, this new deployment will concern the following 6 IDFM territories: Nemours, Coulommiers, Gretz-Ozoir-Tournan, Saint Mard, Houdan-Montfort, Rambouillet Ouest.

Lyon and Strasbourg fall for Padam Mobility’s Demand-Responsive Transport

Demand-Responsive Transport Lyon Strasbourg

On November 13th, the cities of Lyon (Sytral) and Strasbourg (CTS) inaugurated with Padam Mobility their Demand-Responsive Transport services. Elected officials and companies already favor the service. The third and the eighth biggest cities in France are thus complementing and modernizing their public transportation networks. With an offer more finely tuned to the demand, tens of thousands of users are preparing to see their mobility improved.

Improving employees’ commuting

In Lyon, it is in the Mi-Plaine area, which includes 1375 companies and 20,000 employees among the municipalities of Chassieu, Genas and Saint-Priest, that the Sytral launched TCL on demand. This service is integrated into the existing network, with identical pricing. Padam Mobility is in charge of the Demand-Responsive Transport software (interfaces, management and reservation systems and algorithms) that makes this service effective.

Dynamic Demand-Responsive Transport is a concrete solution that addresses the mobility challenges in large areas. It allows us to refine the mesh of the network and better staple territories to ensure overall consistency. Our top priority is the accessibility of our network, in the broad sense of the word” says Fouziya Bouzerda, president of the Sytral.

Six nine-seater vehicles, powered by natural gas (NGV) from 2020 operated by transit operators Keolis Lyon and Berthelet. They now crisscross the Mi-Plaine area to complement the transportation offer. The companies that are located there are enthusiastic. Getting employees to this extended area was difficult. With the job market being so tense, it’s a breath of fresh air.

Opening up suburban and rural territories

In Strasbourg, Flex’hop Z1 covers 13 rural and peri-urban municipalities located in the West and South-West perimeter of the Eurometropolis. Padam Mobility’s Dynamic Demand-Responsive Transport service runs daily from 6:00 am to midnight. It is based on a mandatory reservation made from 15 days to 30 minutes before departure. With 80 stops, it offers more than 4000 itinerary possibilities to meet all travel needs.

This new innovative solution will offer a flexible, fast, ecological service tailored to the mobility needs of residents and employees in the less densely populated areas of the agglomeration. It will thus enable periphery-to-periphery connections which are currently difficult with the network of conventional bus lines” details Robert Hermann, President of the Eurometropolis of Strasbourg.

It is a high-quality service, at the same price as a normal ticket. The service works with electric vehicles that are accessible to people with reduced mobility. It is universal both in terms of time schedules and accessibility. The challenge is obviously to be competitive-attractive compared to the individual cars” adds Alain Fontanel, president of the CTS.

On the CTS Facebook page, a user is already enthusiastic:

It’s very good for peripheral municipalities. Especially for people with no means of transport!  Well done for the initiative!

The eurometropolis has already announced its desire to extend the service, and eventually validate the DRT on all municipalities in the metropolis.

Padam Mobility deploys its Demand-Responsive Transport solutions in Paris region

Transport à la Demande IDF

Padam Mobility, a dynamic Demand-Responsive Transport solutions company, is deploying 4 new territories for Ile-de-France Mobilités (Paris region Public Transport Authority). They are in addition to the 5 territories already equipped with the Padam Mobility technology.

Innovative solutions that optimize shared mobility

Many public transport vehicles travel empty. This is very costly for public authorities. In addition, these “redundant” kilometers are the source of polluting emissions and deteriorate vehicles unnecessarily. Also, the issues of the first and last mile, transportation service in sparsely populated areas and the off-peak hours transportation service are real mobility issues. They are hardly embraced by conventional public transport.

Founded in 2014, Padam Mobility uses artificial intelligence to soften and optimize the trips of both Demand-Responsive Transport (DRT) passengers and drivers. Provided as white label, the interfaces are fully customized and are included in the transportation offers proposed by the authorities or the transit operators. Passenger interfaces (mobile app, website or call centre) allow to book, pay and check in real time the location of the DRT vehicle. The driver’s app continuously calculates the best itinerary to optimally respond to user request while guiding the driver along the route.

Some results already visible

Padam Mobility solutions work and appeal:

  • Since its creation, the company has saved its users around 82,000 km of car trips, equivalent to 16 tonnes of CO2 not emitted.
  • The company contributes to the reduction of empty trips. Concretely, the average grouping rate on Padam Mobility DRT services is 80%. It can reach 92% on the best optimized services.
  • Over the last 4 years, Padam Mobility has already made its users travel 2 million kilometres.
  • Padam Mobility solutions are already implemented in many French territories. Sophia Antipolis, Cotentin, Orléans, Lille, Chelles, Meaux. Abroad, the company is present in Padua in Italy. Its solutions are in simulation in Hong-Kong and soon Helsinki and Madrid. Finally, they are also deployed throughout the Paris region for Île de France Mobilités (IDFM), Paris region Public Transport Authority.

It is a real pleasure to see that the vision we had for dynamic, modern, Demand-Responsive Transport that really serves users is taking shape throughout the Paris region. We have worked hard to put our expertise at the service of local issues by configuring our services on a territory-by-territory basis. These launches enable us to consolidate our position as a leading player in the sector. Says Grégoire Bonnat, CEO and co-founder of Padam Mobility.

Meet a variety of mobility issues in the Paris region

For IDFM, the Padam Mobility’s offer meets the various mobility challenges on its territory. Especially in the outer suburbs. IDFM had already asked Padam Mobility in January 2018 to optimise a dynamic DRT service in feeder stations during peak hours in Gally-Mauldre in the Yvelines.. Padam Mobility provides the transit operator Transdev with its algorithms. They allow the service to be more efficient, with an optimized occupancy rate and itinerary. This is a success. Gally-Mauldre’s DRT service (formerly Flexigo) reaches 6,000 trips per month with more than 95% of reservations made via the mobile app.

4 new territories in Île-de-France for Padam Mobility

Following this successful experience, Padam Mobility won with SETEC ITS in early summer 2019 a call for tenders issued by IDFM for the establishment of a shared mobility reservation et management center for all Île-de-France DRT networks (TAD IDFM). In addition to Gally-Mauldre in the Yvelines, 4 other Île de France territories already have access to Padam Mobility’s service: Meaux, Bois-le-Roi, Centre-Essone and Vexin. On September 2nd 2019, four new territories in the Île-de-France region will be equipped with Padam Mobility solutions: Nangis, Perthes en Gatinais, Melun and La Ferté. 

Padam Mobility solutions allow the optimization of Demand-Responsive Transport services that would otherwise be too expensive compared to the number of passengers transported. By 2020, the shared mobility reservation and management center set up for IDFM will be able to manage more than 60,000 DRT trips per month across 33 networks. The center will be able to manage more than 6 different transport operators.

Ile-de-France Mobilités wins with Padam Mobility

Ile-de-France Mobilités

Ile-de-France Mobilités (IDFM), the organising authority for all sustainable mobility in Ile de France, has assigned the setec-Padam Mobility group the set up of a regional DRT reservation and management plant. A dozen of Paris outer suburb towns will be covered in 2019, before a gradual extension to other areas within four years.

“I am committed to put in place solutions so that every Francilien can access to an efficient public transport wherever they live in Ile-de-France. Launching this new public DRT service provides an almost tailor-made response and with the guarantee of the same quality of service, for many inhabitants of Paris outer suburbs who have poor or no access to mobility. Valérie Pécresse, President of the Ile-de-France Region, President of Ile-de-France Mobilities.

A bespoke public transport service
In order to answer the needs of all the resident and thus adapt to the diversity of the territories, Ile-de-France Mobilités has undertaken the development of DRT mainly in outer suburbs. This solution is ideal to provide tailor-made response to people in the least dense areas in addition to regular modes such as bus lines or trains.

Unlike traditional bus routes, smaller vehicles adapt their routes and schedules to suit passenger requests. They do not follow regular routes but adapt itineraries according to bookings made by users of this service. These bookings can be made either by phone or from a dedicated app. When booking, the user will be able to follow the progress of his vehicle in real time until the arrival, on the dedicated app.

Regional quality of service
The creation of the regional DRT centre will enable users to experience a single and efficient service for all DRT networks in Ile-de-France, regardless of which operator is responsible for operating these services. The plant will be launched from the summer 2019 and tested until October with 3 DRTs (currently being defined). The service will be expanded on October and is expected to bring together 10 DRTs by the end of the year.

Setec its, a leading player digital mobility engeineering, and Padam Mobility, a tech company specialized on DRT, have combined their forces to implement this innovative service launched by Île-de-France Mobilités, taking over the largest market in Europe, with 2.8 million euros over 4 years.

“The selection of our technology by Île-de-France Mobilités marks a very structuring step in our development. This will highlights our technology abilities on a very large scale, probably one of the most important service in the world. We are thus becoming a key player in the management of DRT. “, says Grégoire Bonnat, Padam’s CEO and co-founder. “Thanks to this technology, DRT will expand in longer term: flexible school transport, care for mobility impaired people, etc. »
