Peripheral areas such as rural, remotely located or border regions make up 93 percent of the EU territory. These scarcely populated regions are all facing similar challenges: poor public transport connections, small budgets, demographic change and high levels of unsustainable, exclusive and costly private car use. Peripheral Access will analyse this situation in detail and derive concrete action plans and implement innovative pilot actions in three 

fields of action that represent key success factors for sustainable mobility: multimodality and integrated transport; enhanced use of intelligent communication technology and intelligent technology system; and better cooperation through transport associations and cross-border marketing. The results will benefit public transport users, planners and decision makers and will stimulate changes in mobility behaviour.
