Linking Danube Linking transnational, multimodal traveller information and journey planners for environmentally-friendly mobility in the Danube Region

LinkingDanube tackles the problem of insufficient provision of cross-border traveller information on public transport, particularly considering cross-border commuting and mobility in rural areas . The overall project objective is to foster environmentally-friendly mobility options and balanced accessibility in the Danube Region.


This should be fostered by the provison of transnational, interoperable and multimodal journey planners covering urban but also rural areas. Currently no suitable multimodal, transnational system for travellers exists anywhere in Europe. LinkingDanube will follow a decentralised approach where existing regional systems are conncetd by linking services.

LinkingDanube especially focuses on connecting less accessible areas in the Danube region by linking alternative public transport services and integrating demand transport data into the services. Therefore the integration of transport-on-demand service information is one of the core elements in the project.

One main output is the LinkingDanube Concept for transnational, multimodal journey planning services. The Concept shall serve as input both for the technical development work within LinkingDanube as well as for uptake by project externals. The LinkingDanube Service (Technical Tool) will build on existing systems and will be implemented in a decentralised way ensuring high-quality data. All decentralised journey planners can be addressed through an open interface, ensuring transnational routing via one central application operated by end-user service providers.

The Pilot Action will demonstrate feasibility and functionality of the LinkingDanube Concept including both integrating rural public transport services in the information flow of national/regional journey planners and linking services for cross-border service provision.

For long-term durability of the results, a strategy for the implementation of transnational environmentally-friendly journey planners in the Danube Region will be developed in cooperation with the main stakeholders, integrated as Associated Strategic Partners.
