Rennes Métropole is a grouping of 43 municipalities gathering more than 450 000 inhabitants, located in Western France.
As a PTA (Public Transport Authority), it runs an efficient public transport network with urban and peri-urban bus lines, car sharing and bike renting as well as 2 metro lines (2nd line to open in 2022). The 2030 mobility strategic plan aims at reducing single occupant cars and increasing public transport as well as cycling and walking. Rennes Métropole is also a “living lab” for mobility innovation and experimentation.
In TANGENT, Rennes Métropole aims at gathering and processing data from different stakeholders (public and private) and providing various schemes for data-sharing to guarantee interoperability and improve intermodality. Tested in a specific area of the city, TANGENT services will provide data visualization, real-time traffic management capacities and information to users so as to regulate traffic incidents, as well as tools to optimize the performance of the network. The priorities are to limit the use of private cars by promoting shared modes, reduce congestion and limit air pollution.
