    Benefits of the use of Public Sector Information through the successful case of the Public Transport information released by the City of Gijón. Although, at the beginning, local government was reluctant to open its data, now all the sectors take advance of the reuse of PSI: industry produces Web applications and widgets for citizens; restaurants installed display systems to inform customers; a local artist created a multimedia artwork based on this public information. The most relevant and remarkable action has been implemented by the local government which is reusing their own Open Data, saving potentially €0.8m (4% of the total budget for transport) in the installation of display systems.
