WHY PERIPHERAL ACCESS?

Peripheral areas such as rural, remotely located or border regions make up 93 percent of 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 analysed this situation, derived concrete action plans and implemented innovative pilot actions in three fields of action.

FIELDS OF ACTION

These fields of action 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 benefitted public transport users, planners and decision makers and stimulated changes in mobility behaviour.
