The project LinkingDanube (Linking transnational, multimodal traveller information and journey planners for environmentally-friendly mobility in the Danube Region) was launched on January 1st 2017, funded by the Danube Transnational Programme (DTP). The project will demonstrate feasibility and functionality of linking traveller information services across the borders, by implementing common and open service interfaces. The integration of transport on demand information will be one of the major core elements, in order to link rural areas to the main transport corridors. The objective is finally to take advantage of the project outputs and results for the whole Danube Region, therefore liaison with EU Strategy for the Danube Region (EUSDR) is of high priority. The overall goal is to foster environmentally-friendly mobility in the Danube Region through the provision of transnational, interoperable and multimodal journey planners.
The LinkingDanube event (27th March 2017, 12:00h – 16:30h) will be held in parallel with the ISEP Conference 2017. Insight will be provided into the concept of linking services and the envisaged pilot for a transnational Danube Journey Planner that will be developed in the course of the project. Together with representatives of the EUSDR, the strategic impact of the project will be outlined in terms of mobility and multimodality in the Danube Region.
The event is targeted to private and public operators and authorities directly involved in the organisation of environmentally-friendly transport, but also to innovative mobility service providers and service developers with regard to journey planning and travel information, policy makers and any interested parties.
