We propose designing, implementing, testing, and deploying a mobile phone-based personalized transportation and mobility aid (PTMA) to advance the effectiveness of intelligent transportation systems and enhance the navigability of the Pittsburgh region. The proposed work utilizes information and communications technology (ICT) to improve mobility by increasing the navigation capability and independence of travelers, decrease energy use by reducing the need for individualized transportation options and enabling more travelers to use public transportation options, and make more efficient use of existing infrastructure by enabling a larger population (especially elderly populations and people with disabilities) to effectively use this infrastructure.
