The Belgian city of Ghent has been recognised, alongside eight European towns and cities, for its innovative urban mobility strategy at the 2018 CITIVAS Awards ceremony in Umeå, Sweden. Ghent received the CIVITAS Bold Measure Award for its Traffic Management as a Service (TMaaS) platform. The platform collects and displays mobility data from stakeholders and service providers via a single interface.

The platform was developed through the efforts of local government, industry and universities to minimise hardware investments and allow operators to interpret the data and set their own alerts. The citizens will be able to register for free to the TMaaS dashboard by the end of 2019 and receive alerts when issues arise on their daily routes or in their area.
