Spain / Sweden / UK October 2018 – Tunnll, an international smart transportation systems startup, was amongst the top 3 most promising startups invited to participate at Smart City Expo 2018, in Japan.
Tunnll’s presence at the event was organised by Barcelona Activa, ATR and the Spanish Embassy in Tokyo and allowed the company to demonstrate the social impact and efficiency of its next-gen public transportation system for smart cities.
CEO Kirill Blazhko was recently featured in an article authored by Carlos Manzano for Spanish newspaper El Llobregat where he described how the company’s smart mobility system can optimise public transport within small cities. The article covers a range of other topics such as the differences between Tunnll and other on demand transportation apps and Tunnll’s first trial in Spain, at La Bisbal del Penedès.

The trial comes after an initial test in Härnösand, Sweden through a pilot program in collaboration with Björks & Byberg and Malmö University and approved by Swedish government agency for innovation, Vinnova.
Tunnll’s attendance at Smart City Expo 2018 follows several successful results in 2017 with the first place at the IoT Innovation World Cup and the recognition by the European Commission as one of the top proposals for Transport and Mobility Solutions.
