On behalf of the RIDE2RAIL Consortium, UIC is pleased to invite you to the first RIDE2RAIL stakeholders’ workshop, to be held on 2 February from 09.00 am to 12.00 pm CEST.

Funded under the Shift2Rail Joint Undertaking initiative, RIDE2RAIL “Travel companion enhancements and RIDE-sharing services synchronised to RAIL and public transport” is a 30-month project, led by UITP in collaboration with 17 partners from ten European countries and covering the entire urban mobility chain. It has a budget of €3 million and will be completed in May 2022.

RIDE2RAIL’s overall objective is to develop an innovative framework for intelligent mobility, facilitating the efficient combination of flexible (ride-sharing) and scheduled transport services (rail, bus, and other public transport services), thus enhancing the performance of the overall mobility system.

During this event, participants will learn more about railway initiatives dedicated to MaaS and Door2Door mobility, and project partners will present an overview of the technological developments taking place within RIDE2RAIL and demo activities at the four RIDE2RAIL demo sites: Padua, Brno, Athens and Helsinki.

A final Q&A session will offer participants the opportunity to exchange feedback and get to know more about RIDE2RAIL activities.

More information on RIDE2RAIL and the full agenda for the event are available on the UIC website, where you can register free of charge.

This project has received funding from the Shift2Rail JU under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement no. 881825.
