Example Abstract This is a pilot project of the Region that covers, up to now, but few portions of the regional area. Thanks to this service, citizens/customers (over 60 or disabled people) can book in advance journey, timeschedule and itinerary, obtaining two main benefits: 1) A customized service based on the citizen's own needs; 2) The second more general benefit is represented by less environmental impacts and energy saving, when useless bus journeys without people on board can be avoided. The aim of this pilot action is to test possible alternative forms of public transportation. In order to monitor and manage this service the region has acquired a specific technology.
