HoPE intends to satisfy the needs of citizens and tourists for more easy to use and efficient public transportation systems. Dealing with many travel options, a complex transport network, and changing operational conditions are not easy, nor pleasant tasks for travellers. Daily commuters, occasional travellers, and tourists might have different priorities when moving through an urban or regional area. They need to deal with multiple timetables, network plans, price lists and conditions, and the like. All that burden can represent a real disincentive to the use of public transportation. One of the main focuses of HoPE is to ease the use of public transportation, encompassing all the phases involved in its typical usage: from access and schedule information to real-time operational information, from planning multi-modal trips to bookings and ticket purchases, redemption, and validation, maintaining interoperability across different transportation modes and pre-existing ICT systems.
