Abstract
Cities are the main poles of human and economic activity. Multimodal mobility has increased steeply in recent years in Europe, being one of the EU's objectives for mobility in large urban areas in the region. Transportation systems need to operate as a fluid network in which the user must have the ability to combine different modes easily, adapting his choice to his circumstances as well as to the context, in order for the user?s utility and the system?s efficiency to be as great as possible. New ICT solutions enhance seamless integration between modes at the information level. These solutions are changing rapidly and yet their reach and impact on the citizens? travel patterns as well as on the efficiency of the transport system are to be proven. Several solution types are being introduced wit this aim to act on the demand side resulting in more efficient journeys for individual travelers, and improved satisfaction with the service. (Skelley et Al., 2013) with a lower level of investment than that of infrastructure deployment or an increase in the level of service. One of the most extended solutions is the use of mobile apps for providing the user with contextualized -static and real time- transport information
