INTERMODES : Towards a mobile and sustainable Europe
INTERMODES is the unique international convention entirely devoted to passenger transport intermodality.
In 2013, 200 European passenger transport stakeholders attended INTERMODES: communities representatives, transport organizing authorities, transport operators, representatives from the transport industry, and researchers who contribute to the development of intermodality.
The objectives of INTERMODES is to create a plateform for exchanges between all European players in the passenger transport sector, in order for them to share concrete solutions for the joint construction of a sustainable and mobile Europe. All transport modes are taken into account, from the first to the last mile.
At the travelers' service, the convention is devoted to all forms of intermodality :
- Political (volontarist initiatives of communities and member states to facilitate the access to a sustainable mobility through intermodality);
- Geographical (cross-borders agreements, European programmes for intermodality implementation);
- Technical (interoperability, integrated ticketing, signage, intermodal hubs,ITS, luggages handling, comfort, safety);
- Financial (financings, PPP).
Since 2012, INTERMODES is under the patronage of the Committee of the Regions.
INTERMODES is a "mobility" partner of the Association of European Border Regions (AEBR).
INTERMODES is Official Partner of the Sustainable Energy Europe campaign, an initiative of the European Commission.
