Seamless access to updated information about mobility options is a key factor for sustainable economic development. In this context, the adoption of information systems, with innovative features, meet these needs by stimulating the interest and curiosity of end users. There are well known difficulties, even for regular travelers, to get the most suitable mobility options combining available transport modes. Also, the sustainable mobility has become the new imperative for transport policy. In this paper we present a collaborative platform that supports a Social Network, in which users can search and share sustainable mobility experiences. This platform includes a reputation and a recommender systems specially designed to deal with mobility options.
