We are glad to contribute to the transformation of Brasov into a smart city, adapted to the public transport modernization requirements, something so useful for a city of such great tourism potential as Brasov. Thus, Brasov will be included in the elite cities that adopted modern technological solutions in order to modernize and optimize the transport system by means of a much more efficient management of travel titles, routes, number of busses and their load,” declared Adrian Floarea, Head of the Smart Transport and Taxation Systems UTI business line.
