Call: PA 3 Supporting sustainable transport solutions (Ref.Nr. INTERREG V-A SK-AT/2016/03)

 · Improving joint planning, coordination and practical solutions for an environmentally-friendly, low-carbon and safer transport network and services in the programme area (Specific objective 3.1)

Contact points
Actions able to be supported
  • Actions to support the removal of specific bottlenecks in cross-border public transport infrastructure (mostly planning approaches but eventually pilot investments).
  • Developing joint strategies, concepts and action plans for sustainable multimodal mobility in cities, city-regions and rural areas
  • Development of cross-border intelligent transport systems
  • Improvement of regional mobility by building cycling routes
  • Promotion of mobility centres and multi-modal platforms in order to enhance the efficiency, reliability and quality of greener transport modes and services.
  • Training support for greener regional mobility
  • Further develop multimodal hubs and links to promote emission reducing and energy efficient freight transport. The cooperation programme could contribute to the development of an intermodal strategy for transport and mobility which is pursued under the EUSDR Priority Areas 1a and 1b (mainly by coordination and planning approaches which may be complemented by physical pilot investments) in order to tackle the dynamic growth of cross border freight traffic as outlined in the analysis.
  • Investment into corresponding infrastructure may include the purchase of vehicles/cars (in accordance with the respective legal and state aid provisions), small reconstructions and additional equipment for bus and train stations/stops, for improvement of standards of integrated transport system, building multimodal terminals (parking lots, signs, stops, stop information system), building new or investment into existing ports. It is not planned to finance hard infrastructure in a “fragmented” way. All hard investments must be part of a strategic approach to achieve a critical mass and visibility of actions. Only innovative pilot action contributing to CO2 reduction can be supported.
