Throughout the world and particularly in urban areas, population growth can be listed as a direct cause of the uprising use of personal vehicles in cities around the world. Such attitude may lead to dramatic consequences, not only economically, but socially and environmentally. To meet these challenges, and to promote the use of multiple means of public transports by citizens, public authorities and transport operators seek − within the framework of the implementation of connected cities projects and intelligent − to optimize the extraction as well as the exploitation of the multimodal information by developing Interactive Systems of Assistance to the Multimodal Movement (IAMM). However, finding the optimal multimodal path for a given person is far from being a simple matter. Indeed, each potential user may have different or unique preferences regarding the: cost and/or duration of his/her journey, number of mode changes, comfort or safety levels desired. In the present study, we propose a multi-agent system which, based on the parameters entered by each user, proposes the optimal paths in the Pareto sense, including different public transport modes, private cars and parking availability.
Key words: Multimodal transport / smart parking / multi-agents systems / multi-objective optimization
