Working with MobOx’s projects have enabled the Oxford Oxford County Council as Transport Authority to form a consortium with Businesses and the Universities creating opportunities for the Council to lead, influence, and gain funding for innovative transport solutions.
The County Council will provide access to a variety of real-time and historical datasets sourced from the private and public sector. By allowing developers and other stakeholders to use the data they need to build applications and services for the benefit of transport users and beyond, the County Council will help creating business opportunities and encouraging SME to grow in Oxfordshire and the South East.
