Short description

Within the 2,5 years of implementation TRANSDANUBE.PEARLS will establish a network of destinations committed to sustainable mobility in tourism– the “Transdanube.Pearls”. Being part of this network will increase the visibility of the participating destinations offering their visitors the unique possibility to travel the Danube with sustainable means of transport.

On the other hand, the network will facilitate the cooperation of stakeholders from the mobility and tourism sector of different levels. Common standards and appropriate organisational structures secure the operation of the network beyond project lifetime.

Trainings provide local and regional stakeholders with the capabilities to further develop sustainable mobility services. The knowledge acquired during the trainings will be enriched by the experiences gained during the development and demonstration of mobility and information services in the project - mobility services that will contribute to overcome gaps and improve quality especially on the last mile getting to the destinations and within the destinations. By better combining public transport and cycling the project will furthermore improve intermodal travel chains which will increase the quality and resilience of the whole transport system.

Additional efforts will be undertaken to improve the access to user-friendly information about existing mobility services. While regional mobility centers will act as one-stop-shops for mobility in the regions, international tourism and mobility information platforms will allow tourists to inform themselves about their possibilities to travel the regions along the Danube without using the private car. Specific sustainable tourism mobility offers will provide attractive packages for visitors preferring to follow a given route.
