Objective

Journeys are often undertaken by car or airplane in cases where reasonable modal alternatives exist -for a journey's major stages. Reasons for such modal choices are in many cases the lack of integration of transport modes or the limited abilities of individuals to combine different modes by themselves. Additionally transport operators have only limited information about the market potentials for integrated transport services. Significant deficiencies still exist in the knowledge about current and potential intermodal demand and supply.

The main objective is therefore the provision of a knowledge base (KB) on intermodal travel in Europe. This KB shall comprise all relevant information about passenger intermodality, can easily be accessed and allows stakeholders to develop and evaluate intermodality-related measures. The KB will be a core element to support a complementary Coordinated Action (Forum). It will allow to integrate and to disseminate existing information and data.
