An enhanced intermodality in passenger transport is one key to a more efficient and integrated transport system which improves the ease of travelling while at the same time minimizes environmental impacts. The trends of growing long-distance traffic by road and air and often stagnating rail and local public transport lead to an unsustainable imbalance. The European Commission (DG TREN) has recently involved the co-modality policy, in other words the use of transport modes according to their relative advantages.
