Title of Challenge
City in a cloud - how do we improve data generation and processing to get transportation and mobility flowing in the city?
Description of city challenge
How do we improve transportation flow in the city by offering and improving access to more sustainable options, and by generating, collecting , and processing data to enable better decision making and service availability?
Herzliya is seeing annual increases in the use of private cars, affecting air pollution and greenhouse gases emissions. Almost 80% of vehicles in the city are private cars, and they conduct 35% of their journeys within city borders. Car ownership in the city is 466 cars per 1,000 inhabitants (while the national average stands at 325). It is estimated that annual distance traveled within city borders will reach 342.5 million km by 2020. 81% of city inhabitants use private car to reach their workplace while only 14% use public transportation
Herzliya industrial zone poses a unique transportation challenge. The area receives approx.. 40,000 incoming employees daily, mostly aged 25-50 and living in surrounding cities. This creates huge traffic jams in Hasira interchange – the main entrance to the area. People arriving by train use shuttles to the industrial zone, which are usually at maximum capacity and don’t answer the demand, despite their very high frequency.
Others use the public transportation which is not preferred in traffic junctions or in designated fast lanes and others cycling, on a trails system that fragmented by a major road hence the railway station is on the outskirts of the industrial zone.
In the city center also occur many private vehicles Traveling: Transportation of children to schools and to leisure and recreation activities and also employment in the city center.
The city strategic plan for greenhouse gases emission reductions placed a goal of reducing 15% in annual distance traveled by private cars within city limits by 2020
