Under the leadership of OLTIS Group, “Brno DEMO” assignment was launched at the beginning of May. Our task is to transfer the RIDE2RAIL (R2R) project key objectives to the Czech Republic location, specifically the South Moravian Region. For this reason, the project team organised online meeting with UNIZA partners and KORDIS, where the key coordination was initiated. The concepts relating to setting up and implementation of the Brno DEMO were subsequently presented at the first Consortium meeting (meeting of all project partners) on 20 May 2020.
R2R is one of the Innovation Program 4 major projects within the Shift2Rail Joint Undertaking. Between 12/2019 and 5/2022, designated personnel, including OLTIS Group, will deal with two assignments. The first is to implement personal shared transport (so-called ride sharing) into the public transport system and thus support its use in hitherto inadequately covered areas. The second assignment is to create functional system for classifying travel offers with regard to customer preferences, but also according to the environmental impact.
