SubNodes tackled the weak intermodal integration of peri-urban hinterland regions to primary TEN-T rail hubs. For this, suitable medium-sized cities in these areas were to be developed into attractive intermodal secondary hubs, so called sub-nodes, which better connect the hinterland to the TEN-T rail network and offer passengers a continuous travel chain.
The project's ultimate aim was to establish the subnodes-approach in the participating regions by adopting a SubNodes-strategy, conceptualizing its implementation and testing innovative actions in real world conditions. Policy recommendations derived from this process were integrated into transport plans or spatial planning strategies of the regions.
One core joint output is the signing of a joint declaration, in which the political representatives of the partner regions agreed on key statements, such as:
Digital information displays have been installed in Grosuplje. These serve to provide timetable or integrated travel information for buses and trains, arrivals and departures in real time, as well as useful additional information such as weather forecasts.
SubNodes had 9 partners from 6 Central European countries
