Objective

HERMES project will provide development and analysis of new mobility schemes and associated organisational patterns at the interface and interconnection between long distance transport networks and local/regional transport network. Although these are conceptually simple operations, requiring only some real-time telecommunication, there are organizational and contractual difficulties in its realisation. The first part should concentrate on identification of the key requirements of the travellers, the corresponding services and necessary underlying company agreements to provide them, followed by a business plan for the operation. The second part of the project would have demonstrations in the selected corridors for a period of at least 6 months of field experience. The final product of the project should be a handbook of recommendations based on the analytical part and on the demonstration part of the project. Prototypes for the business model of the innovative services will be developed and further tested in case studies for validation of its functional, economic and organizational aspects aiming to provide recommendations regarding enhanced co-ordination between decision-making levels on issues related to the interconnection of transport networks of different scales and modes, addressing institutional, legal, design, planning, technical and deployment aspects.
