Amsterdam is the capital and most populous city of the Netherlands, home to around 2.5 million inhabitant in its metropolitan area. Located in the heart of the economically strong Randstad region, Amsterdam is considered as a hub for businesses and tourism alike. Thanks to its large port and direct train connections to all major Dutch cities, as well as a dense network of local and regional trains, Amsterdam infrastructure is used by many commuters.
The first round of testing was conducted in spring 2019 with 22 participants, who were given various simulated mobility scenarios in Amsterdam. These tasks had to be solved with the help of the MyCorridor app.
In the second pilot round tests are based on “real world” scenarios, in which 60 participants are asked to test the MyCorridor app for functionality and usability over a period of time. In these tests, participants are invited to use the MyCorridor for their daily commutes to work, to university and leisure travels to the Johan Cruijff ArenA, a main destination for concerts and sports events in Amsterdam.
So far, the biggest challenge in the whole process is the integration of big number mobility services in order to provide an attractive and ideally all-encompassing offer so that the users can take real advantage of the usage of the MyCorridor App.
