The SITE project, in which several CIVINET members have been involved, is holding his final conference on 13 June, in Dublin!
9 partners (local authorities, network operators, transport management authorities) from 6 different cities of the 5 countries of the Atlantic Area, have collaborated for 2 years and a half, to facilitate a seamless travel thanks to innovative ticketing solutions.
The project has developed and trialed solutions which allow travellers to have greater mobility through the use of intermodal and interoperable ticketing.
The 6.5 millions euros of investment of all the partners in the SITE project is financed 65% by the European Regional Development Fund in the frame of the INTERREG IV B Atlantic Area Programme.
The project has now reached its conclusion and provides an opportunity to share the learning and outcomes with a wide range of interest groups. Challenges of a more sustainable travel through smart ticketing in transports will be the main point under discussion in the conference, which will be of particular interest to Public Transportation operators, Policy Makers and most importantly users of Public Transport and mobility stakeholders.
An exciting range of expert speakers will contribute to the Dublin Conference and the outcomes and future opportunities for more innovative and sustainable use of Public Transportation will be discussed and shared.
