CONNECT2CE aims at tackling the weak accessibility of regional, peripheral and cross-border areas of central Europe to and from main transport networks and hubs, which is caused by the long lasting phenomenon of urbanisation.
CONNECT2CE will do so by elaborating harmonised and coordinated transnational strategies, action plans and tools to be mainstreamed and implemented at regional and cross border level through pilot actions, in three areas all connected and intertwined with one another and all being essential elements that contribute to the enhancement of PT services of peripheral/cross-border regions:
Connectivity (PSOs/PSCs, harmonisation of multimodal timetables, regional and cross-border rail services)
Integrated ticketing and tariff schemes (integration of regional and cross border multimodal tickets will be tested and implemented for the first time),
Implementation of the most efficient and innovative ICT tools on info-mobility
These outputs will be developed at transnational level, as common solutions to common problems. This approach will be applied throughout the duration of the project, by the active participation of all project partners in all work packages applying the elaborated territorial strategies and action plans at local, regional and cross-border level, thereby combining transport and territorial development.
CONNECT2CE ticket can be purchased online to travel from Ljubljana to Villa Opicina by train and then continue the trip by bus, using Trieste Trasporti bus services.
