Zhenjiang, China Implements New Transportation Plan

Hello!  I’ve found an interesting article about one of IBM’s latest endeavours in Zhenjiang, China, involving tourism and traffic efficiency in the city.

With a population of  about three million people, Zhenjiang is an important transportation hub worldwide.  It’s located near the intersection of the Yangtze River and the Grand Canal.

To increase economic development as well as tourism, Zhenjiang initiated the “Smarter Zhenjiang, Smarter Tourism” project with IBM.  The plan is to replace and upgrade more than 400 bus stations and over 1,000 public transportation vehicles.  IBM’s Intelligent Operations Center (IOC) for Smarter Cities will provide a solution to upgrade the city’s transportation network and improve throughput and efficiency.

IBM supports the Chinese government’s commitment to improving transport systems and accelerating economic growth and transformation nationwide.  City managers will have a consolidated view of the transportation network, and a new bus scheduling system will be initiated using analytics technologies.  This “smart solution” will help in managing the development of traffic solutions throughout the city.
