With its 442 500 inhabitants and the title European Green Capital 2015, Bristol is named alongside London as the UK’s smart city leaders. As part of the REPLICATE project, Bristol will deploy a number of smart integrated energy, mobility and ICT solutions in the neighbourhoods of Ashley, Easton and Lawrence Hill. The pilot will explore how technology could help tackle inequalities, such as how smart homes could help ease fuel poverty, and how electric bikes could help people to be more active and have more choice on how to travel.
Intermodality concerns the integration of urban public transport (PT) services (e.g. bus and tram) with other modes of personal and collective transport such as Automated People Movers (APM), bicycles and private cars through bike/park-and-ride schemes and national/regional rail. Therefore, it encompasses public-private co-operation, and covers infrastructure investments such as stops or terminals that link multiple modes of transport.
