Aim of the project: developing a better-connected & interoperable environmentally friendly transport & safe system in functional urban areas (FUA) of Danube Region, overall based on integration between more sustainable means. The majority of European cities have grown around an identifiable centre, where commerce, transport, entertainment, shopping and political power are concentrated. Various instruments can be used to tackle this phenomena, such as access restriction policies, the location and pricing of parking, improvement of public transport services. Nevertheless, each of these approaches has proved to present pros and cons that need to be carefully evaluated to identify the most effective mix of solutions for each functional urban area (FUA).
