Concerted coordination for the promotion of efficient multimodal interfaces

Objective

Regions suffering from strong and seasonal variations of transport demand face growing problems, such as congestion, environmental pollution, energy loss and increased travel times. Furthermore, multimodal interfaces linking the various means serving these regions do not exist, passenger trips are organized on the basis of empirical estimations and there is ad-hoc handling of seasonal demand. Other available transport means will have to play a greater role, while the use of intelligent mobility schemes and the creation of synergies between transport modes will relief the existing situation. Having recognized the critical role that regions with steep seasonal demand can play to economic growth and development, DELTA will initiate a coordination and networking action, and commence an active dialogue among projects, research stakeholders, policy makers, experts, representatives of regions and local governmental agencies to promote sustainable solutions and efficient multimodal interfaces in regions with seasonal peaks. The action will lead to a Decision Support Instrument composed of mobility schemes, measures or policies that can be applied by cities towards integrated and sustainable mobility. Additional outcomes will be: Knowledge base with the detailed characteristics of the cities and regions with seasonal demand profile; Cities classification; Framework of mobility schemes; Handbook of benchmarks; Local and External Research Stakeholders Forums; Network of European cities; and Future research needs. All these results will be widely disseminated and spread to local stakeholders and members of the mobility management community. Finally, the collective character of the proposed coordination effort is quite strong, since the partners have different experience backgrounds, which when put all together comprise a consortium that covers all disciplines that are essential and necessary for the successful implementation of the project.
