Other TAP NT Activities

The TAP NT monitors currently two sectors of activity where some railways (European and overseas) are already active, in order to detect the possible need for the definition of UIC standards, suitable to improve the interoperability and the reuse of experience :

  • Air/Rail intermodality Various railways adopted IATA IATA International Air Transport Association -like codifications for trains and stations, especially for new high speed services, in order to be sold by the operators exactly in the same way as they sell flights, appearing on the same screen display of the GDSs.
  • Internet in motion Various railways have experimented, and in some cases are using, different techniques (satellite, radio links) to make available fast and reliable data connections on board of even high speed trains, both for use of the on board staff and to offer to the passengers access to the Internet as well as audio/video entertainment.
