Smart Columbus MMTPA/CPS




The Multimodal Trip Planning Application/Common Payment System (MMTPA/CPS) is an application that will allow travelers to enter trip request parameters and develop multimodal trip itineraries through coordination with mobility providers and provide travelers the ability to pay for these trips by creating a common payment system. IVR functions will be processed via the MMTPA. Travelers at the HUBS will access the MMTPA by using the interactive kiosk or public Wi–Fi and their personal wireless device which will allow those without computers or smart phones to set up multimodal trips and set up traveler accounts
