The integrated passenger information and ticketing system
We will invest the project funds in building a modern regional public transport offer in Pomorskie by designing and testing one-spot travel information and single ticket solution for rides on all public transport modes along two long-range lines in the region. Our results will lead to a wide-scale deployment of the integrated passenger information and ticketing system for the whole area of Pomorskie at the value of 135 million EUR.
Delivering know-how and planning tools
To ensure an efficient management of this unprecedented system, we will transfer experience from other project partner areas and assist the authorities in Pomorskie Voivodeship in establishing a regional public transport organisation. We will deliver know-how and new planning tools for sustainable mobility to the public transport management bodies in the partner areas. Thereby, we will help them adjust the services to the community needs and launch innovative cross-border solutions.
New solution for Pomorskie and Blekinge
We will implement a new cross-border travel information system for public transport passengers in Blekinge area to encourage them to visit attractive destinations in the neighbouring regions and countries without a car. Ultimately, we will see to it that the public transport services in Pomorskie and Blekinge are harmonised to the extent that the joint products become feasible. We will push for single ticket solutions and multimodal journey packages between the two regions, including a Gdynia-Karlskrona ferry ride - to rival the existing offer for the motorised travellers.
Better services in Klaipeda
We will offer better services for commuters in the Klaipeda area to attract them to a new regional-local bus interchange point and decrease car traffic pressure on the road network in town.
Cooperation across the German-Danish border
We will influence the travel decision choices on the Rostock-Gedser route to see more foot passengers aboard the new ferries and a flourishing institutional cooperation across the German-Danish border for regional integration and economic growth.
Better quality of life in the South Baltic area
Working with new and innovative public transport services, we contribute to a reduced environmental footprint of transport and a better quality of life in the whole South Baltic area. Our methodologies and products are of use for any stakeholders in and outside the project geography and may give birth to new market initiatives and business opportunities. Therefore, the information and ticketing systems which we help design and implement, are compatible with existing solutions and allow for easy and low-cost extension to the neighbouring regions and countries.
Interconnect supports new and more efficient public transport services both in and between the coastal regions of the South Baltic area - to give the residents and tourists broader and more sustainable options for realising their mobility needs.
