The EU-funded project i-Tour addresses Safety, Efficiency, Environmental Sustainability in personal mobility by providing intelligent multi-modal mobility services, considering user preferences and real-time information on road, weather, public transport, network condition. Alternative business models, and go-to-market strategies are discussed:

2. To market server access and interfaces configuration

These two approaches are deployed via two business strategies:

a) A new company or

b) Intermediation of a strong partner.

Financial simulations are applied to reasonable compositions of the above hypotheses, with break- attained when population of reached areas tops 50 million, involving 20 to 30 Urban Zones.
