Call for proposal:FP6-2005-TREN-4See other projects for this call
Funding scheme:CA - Coordination action
A better integration of transport modes contributes to a more efficient transport system. The current status in Europe is heterogeneous - to travel across Europe on a single ticket and door-to-door information is a splendid vision. To align co-operation with competition is the challenge. The 2004 Commission passenger intermodality study, carried out by partners of this proposal, has proposed a forum to bring together the stakeholders to overcome market and policy fragmentation.
The objectives of the LINK forum are to foster the integration of passenger intermodality policies and facilitate co-operation for intermodal solutions. Exchange, knowledge transfer and promotion are the three tasks to be tackled: A. Passenger Intermodality Network: Five work groups - door-to-door information/ticketing, intermodal networks/interchanges, integration of long-distance transport and "last urban mile", planning/implementation, context conditions - will bring together administrators, operators, researchers and users.
