Vilnius, Lithuania

2014 challenge

The City of Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania, is challenged by traffic congestion, which has a negative impact on the environment, productivity, and quality of life. Vilnius has already made significant investments in upgrading its road and public transit infrastructure and diverting traffic from sensitive UNESCO historical heritage sites, but lacks experience in integrating its transportation management activities. Mayor Arturas Zuokas asked IBM to help Vilnius use data and analytics to streamline traffic management and improve the effectiveness of public transit options.
