Councils across England pitched their ideas to improve journeys in their areas through digital innovation and 19 have been chosen to receive between £50,000 and £300,000.
Apps that notify motorists of congestion, free parking spaces and real time journey information for visually impaired passengers, are just some of the projects that will receive a share of £4 million government technology funding.
The money is to be spent on developing technology like apps and sensors which can be used to cut congestion and improve city centre parking and also to alert drivers when electric car charging points become available.
Successful councils include:
Roads Minister, Andrew Jones, said: “I congratulate today’s winners for coming up with cutting-edge, innovative ideas that will transform journeys for passengers and motorists across the country.
“Technology is rapidly evolving and this important work shows that if we get it right, it can cut congestion, speed up journeys, clean up the environment, and improve accessibility.”
