A toolbox for interchanges: the NODES project kicks-off!
The main objective of NODES is to build a toolbox to support European cities in the design and operation of new or upgraded interchanges, as a way to provide greater support, services and satisfaction to travellers and users, as well as to interchange operators, and those societal and economic actors depending on the efficiency of interchange operations.
Guidelines on five topics will be developed:
- Land use & infrastructure
- Intermodality and ICT
- Business models
- ENergy & Environment
A state of the art review and an anaysis of user needs and system requirements will serve as basis to define the Key Performance Indicators that will be integrated into the NODES toolbox. This toolbox will be validated in 10 application sites, including Polis members Toulouse, Reading, Budapest and Rome. Other interested stakeholders will be able to also join NODES as part of the User Group.
