Technical assistance for the «Improved rail connections and smart mobility in Central Europe» (Connect2CE project)


CONNECT2CE, a project co-financed by the Interreg Central Europe Programme 2014-2020, aims at tackling the weak accessibility of regional, peripheral and cross-border areas of Central Europe to/from the main regional/national/EU transport networks and hubs. Three main activities will be developed:

  • connectivity (harmonisation of multimodal timetables, regional and cross-border rail services);
  • integrated ticketing and tariff schemes (integration of regional and cross border multimodal tickets will be tested and implemented for the first time);
  • implementation of the most efficient and innovative ICT tools on info-mobility.

This approach is applied in several pilot areas, thanks to transnational strategies and action plans at cross-border level.

TRT’s role in the project is to provide technical assistance to the Lead Partner – Executive Secretariat of the Central European Initiative – and local stakeholders for the implementation of Pilot Action no. 6, which aims at introducing a cross-border integrated ticket (train+bus) between Ljubljana and Trieste.
