FLEXIBLE TRANSPORT SERVICES IN AUSTRIA AND SERBIA:
- Our project partner from the Regionalmanagement Burgenland already implemented the first flexible transport service in the region of Neusiedl Lake in Austria on 30 June 2018.The service is a newly established call-a-bus system for the last mile between existing railway and bus stations and the destination of the tourists (hotel, touristic attraction).

The Danube Competence Center will establish a cycling friendly service that enables cross-country transfer of cyclo-tourists between Kladovo (Serbia) and Dobreta Turnu Severina (Romania) and thereby guarantees a connection from Belgrade to Bucharest.
Two taxi drivers will install bicycle carriers on their vehicles and provide regularly transport services based on a fixed price. The service will be most likely implemented in 2019.
