The purpose of the ICARUS project is to increase and improve sustainable travel options in coastal transport services and provide alternatives to independent car use.
These solutions include harmonization of timetables, availability of car/bike sharing within transport nodes, innovative ICT solutions for seamless flow of information, integrated intelligent multimodal payment systems, dynamic travel planning, and cross-border intermodal services. The innovative solutions will trigger a behavioral shift away from personally owned vehicles in favor of public and shared services.
Over the course of 2020, the project group analyzed the current state of the art in terms of innovative solutions, mobility gaps and needs, as well as by capitalizing on EU and international practices. This provided useful data to calibrate pilot activities.
The project group produced three documents in which they analyzed: the ICT tools currently available for public transport and intermodal solutions, including MaaS and its opportunities; behavior change towards more sustainable transport modes, along with the solutions adopted to make a radical change; and finally, a policy framework in each local context and related trends worldwide. These documents provide insights on the pillars of the project and in general, key aspects of intermodality and mobility.

In addition, the experience and expertise of the ICARUS project are shared with other (non-partner) institutions in the ADRION region through the Enlarged Transfer Programme (ETP) where they can receive training on how to improve sustainable travel through cross-border and multimodal passenger connections and Mobility as a Service which may be implemented in their area.
VIU_TeDIS is one of the partners of the project “Intermodal Connections in Adriatic-Ionian Region to Upgrowth Seamless solutions for passenger” (ICARUS) financed by the Italy-Croatia INTERREG Program.
