Subscribe to RSS - Intermodality

Intermodal transport refers to the use of at least two different modes of transport during one door-to-door journey. The level of integration in terms of ownership, operation or usability is an important aspect of intermodality. Improving intermodal transport requires the development of seamless integrated transport chains.

INTERCONNECT toolkit - improving intermodal travel

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.

Integrated transport chains

The increasing complexity of mobility not only in urban areas but also in long-distance journeys results in widespread congestion, economic and environmental problems.

Against the door-to-door trip by private car, a more sustainable model of public transport should offer passengers the possibility of a seamless journey taking advantage of the flexible combination of features of the different transport modes and the covering supply of interconnected long-distance, regional and local networks of public transport.
