Icilà is a service available at DRT . Its purpose is toprovide a solution to mobility issues in low-density areas of the Sophia Antipolis community ofurban area and at the same time contribute to its digital transformation . The bookings service is available from 10 days in advance to 2 hours before departure.

The service should be extended to a new route in the near future (Antibes/Valloris). The implementation of innovations on the regular lines of the bus network is under study, in particular the booking on the fixed lines.

Territory covered by the service :

  • 2500 companies
  • 68,000 jobs
  • 24Km2
  • 24 municipalities
  • 10 zones of DRT
  • 1000 stops, including 2 stations

Before the implementation of the solutions Padam Mobility, there was already a DRT, but the call center was saturated and could not take all bookings. Almost 90% of bookings calls are now made via the application. The call center has gone from 7000 calls per month to 2300.
