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 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.
These tools were identified under five topics (which correspond to transport interchanges’ key functions):
- land use and infrastructure
- 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.

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