The Travel CO2 Calculator aims to promote climate-friendly travelling modes in Lithuania. It is a web-based tool, integrated into a popular Lithuanian route planner at www.maps.lt/CO2. Whenever a site-visitor is planning a trip, the calculator provides information on travel carbon footprint for the most popular transport modes and highlights sustainable options. Passenger transport is responsible for a significant share of CO2 emissions, which, however, can be highly reduced through our individual choices.
The idea addresses personal multi-modal mobility and proposes a system of credits to act, at a certain extent, on personal mobility and, thus, to control urban traffic. In our idea, credits could be earned by people when using a specific bus, an extra-urban parking, as an award for off-loading a congested route, or for sending instantaneous traffic information. On the other hand, credits could be spent as discounts on the transport facilities, or to purchase the possibility to enter a restricted traffic area.

The aim of the Open Mobile Ticketing Alliance is to enable the vision of ‘Register once, travel anywhere’ by developing open, interoperable standards with payment vendors and transit operators.The overall objective of the OMTA is to define and promote an open, standards-based solution for mobile ticketing, based on an alternative and open mobile ticketing solution. The Open Mobile Ticketing Alliance builds on top of open payment systems, replacing cards with a mobile device. This device (usually a mobile phone) is used as an identifier to gain access to the public transport system.
The SMILE Project will develop and test a prototype of what will be - from the user perspective - a pioneering integrated, multi-modal information, booking and payment system, linking individual e-mobility services with those of public transport; characterized by uniform usability and with a consistent guidance system - virtual and on-site. Standardized interfaces will allow and facilitate other mobility provider access to the system.

A number of Forum Virium Helsinki’s projects, such as the development of a traffic information platform have led to successful commercial deployments following extensive trials, whereas others aim to implement the strategic goal of Finland towards open data such as the Helsinki Region Infoshare project. The traffic information platform, for example, captures real-time data and informs citizens about traffic congestion, roadworks, accidents or elks spotted on the motorway.
