New Tools for Design and Operation of Urban Transport Interchanges.

NODES was a three-year research European project, focusing on the efficient integration of public transport services. NODES built a toolbox to green and yellow city tramsupport 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.

These tools were identified under five topics (which correspond to transport interchanges’ key functions):

  • land use and infrastructure
  • design
  • intermodality and ICT
  • management and business models
  • energy and environment

They were tested in nine European cities engaged in substantial development or upgrading activities, which provided a feedback loop for their improvement.

Key deliverables:

The project was funded by the European Commission's Directorate General for Mobility and Transport through the FP7 Programme.
