Intermodal transport refers to the use of at least two different modes of transport during one door-to-door journey. The level of integration in terms of ownership, operation or usability is an important aspect of intermodality. Improving intermodal transport requires the development of seamless integrated transport chains.

Public transport in Pomerania gets a push (Poland)

English

Over 169 million zloty (39 million Euros) is being invested into public transport initiatives in the Pomerania region of Poland. A subsidy for just under half that amount is being provided by the EU.

The efficiency and availability of public transport across the region will be improved by easing access at various transport junctions and interchanges. New or redesigned transport hubs will integrate multiple modes of transport and allow for simple transfers between them. The routes of trams, buses, and local and regional trains will come together far more as a result.
