There is potential for greater efficiency and reducing environmental impact of passenger transport by improving the connections between different modes or networks of transport. The INTERCONNECT project focused on journeys of at least 100km which involves at least one short-distance stage, and has developed guidance for improving the connection of short-distance modes to long-distance ones, such as interregional railways, seaports or airports.
The project's toolkit describes 94 different solutions across a variety of different scenarios, to help policy-makers decide which is most appropriate. These are accompanied by tools to assess and evaluate the effectiveness of different measures. It can be used to find inspiration for solutions to problems, or to compare potential solutions which a user already has in mind.
