It’s on the Saint Etienne network (STAS) that Transdev and Cityway will propose, starting April 24th 2015, their user-centric application on Apple Watch.
Acting as a laboratory for this innovation, the Saint Etienne experience will be subsequently applied to most of the Transdev Group networks.
The agglomeration of Saint-Etienne Métropole and the Transdev Group, already engaged in a digital mobility policy, are actively pursuing their innovation policy aiming at specific users in public transport. The goal is to decongest it and simplify the user’s journey, meeting at the same time the demands of dematerialization and increasing the autonomy the latter seeks.
Thanks to geolocation, the Cityway application on Apple Watch will propose the closest bus stops and timetables to users, and will also guide them to their destination offering real time information.
The application will also detect and suggest to its users the points of interest located nearby (such as public places, services, infrastructures etc) and will guide them according to their preferences.
