The transport priority provides answers to the core-periphery dichotomy in the CENTRAL EUROPE area. Thanks to the projects funded under this priority, the gap between peripheral and less accessible regions and the area’s well-connected centres will be reduced. The connections of regions and cities to the European transport networks will improve and multi-modal environmentally friendly passenger and freight transport will be strengthened.
Our fourth call offers an unique opportunity to combine Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE outputs and results with those delivered by projects funded under directly managed EU Programmes. Thematic focus of our fourth call for project proposals in transport priority is on
Public transport connections are often weak in rural areas. In Osterburg, they launched a first so-called "citizen bus" to improve the situation. The new bus service is run by volunteers, who are often retired people that want to give back to the community in their spare time. The service was introduced as a pilot of our RUMOBIL project.
The call focuses on projects on the more peripheral "comprehensive network" of the TEN-T. It is open until 24 April 2019 and allocates € 65 million to removing bottlenecks and bridging missing links; works concerning cross-border infrastructure projects for railways, inland waterways and roads; a better interconnection of national transport networks.
