ICARUS aims at improving passenger intermodal transport connections and easing coast-hinterland sustainable accessibility, promoting car-independent lifestyles.

The project fights against problems generated by the massive use of private cars by introducing solutions based on innovative technologies to adapt smart mobility in a digital world. Moreover, it intends to activate a behavioral change in mobility, using the “Mobility as a Service” which is a concept representing the shift from personally owned modes of transportation towards mobility solutions that are consumed as a service.

Sustainable multimodal seamless solutions will be tested through 8 pilot actions consisting in harmonisation 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.

ICARUS Partners gathered in Venice to officially launch project activities starting from the identification of gaps and needs in both countries to involving transport authorities in testing new or extended services to improve multimodal connections in the area.

Car transport represents 80% of land transport in EU 28 and is expected to grow, causing accidents, congestion and pollution. Fighting against this problems calls for an immediate improvement of transport services and changes in behaviors from different perspectives: users and transport operators. For this reason 10 institutions coming from Italy and Croatia joined forces to improve passenger intermodal transport connections and ease coast hinterland sustainable accessibility to promote car-independent lifestyles. The project was officially launched with the kick off meeting on 27-28 March 2019 in Venice, where partners started analyzing the current state of the art with the aim of identifying gaps and needs of the territories and involving authorities and transport operators in testing new or extended services to improve multimodal connections in the area. On a later stage 8 pilot actions and a case study will be implemented focusing on timetables harmonization, car/bike sharing within transport nodes, ICT solutions for seamless flow of information, integrated intelligent multimodal payment systems, dynamic travel planning and cross-border intermodal services.  These activities will be tested in the regions of Emilia-Romagna, Abruzzo, Veneto, Friuli Venezia Giulia, Primorsko-Goranska, Istarska, Sibensko-Kninska and Splitsko-Dalmatinska.
