Project Description


Project description

TISAR project was focused on the theme of public transport data sharing and multimodal traveler information at political and technical level. The aim of the project was the implementation of an ICT platform prototype where public transport and journey planning data were merged and made available in the languages of the IPA Countries. The TISAR platform aimed to give information on available public transport solutions combined in a seamless multimodal journey planning. The project proved the ability to integrate, in a single virtual location, updated travel information for the users with the implementation of web services to allow standard interfacing between TISAR portal and local travel planners. This in response to four observed problems: a) reduce the fragmentation in terms of travel planning system already existing at European level; b) provide an easy and smart way to plan trip in a wide area through a single portal; c) provide multimodal travel planner with updated travel information to the travelers; d) promote the sustainable mobility and trip across Adriatic macro Region. TISAR portal is available 24H every day. Eleven local travel planners (one for each involved area) connect to the TISAR platform offering a door to door travel solution in a wide area.

What has been done during the project in order to achieve its main goal(s)?

1. Development of an Institutional round table for the definition of policies in support of multimodal passenger mobility within the Adriatic macro-region, mainly by means of shared information on the availability of public transport and its integration on a single platform. This included: a) sharing of best practices on information systems to users, with focus on multimodal, multi-operator systems; b) information collection on local journey planning systems; c) comparison with the technical worktable on the interoperability of existing systems and integration techniques; d) involvement of various stakeholders.

2. Setting up of a technical-operational worktable for thorough analysis, design and implementation of a single portal to manage information to users (Traveler Information System) which is multimodal and multi-channel within the Adriatic macro-region. This included: a) technical analysis on the state of the art of local travel planning systems; b) assessment of interoperability and definition of guidelines for system integration based on European standards; c) implementation of the platform for integration of travel planners.

3. Several public events and communication tools have been developed to spread information about the project activities and to support the communication of the platform. This included: a) 5 public events at cross-border level; b) Cross-border workshop on territorial marketing; c) web-portal ; d) Leaflets, brochures and electronic newsletters.

Which are the project main results/impacts? 

Result/Impact 1

The final output of TISAR was the development and realization of a Traveler Information System for the Adriatic Region, which included the following component: 1. Web Services (WSs) – The WSs allow the communication between the TISAR platform and each Local Travel Planner; 2. Local Interfaces – Adapt the web services at local level to be connected to the central web portal; 3. Local Travel Planner; 4. Long range calculator – This component is able to find the solutions on the long distance, it calculates all possible combinations between HUBs identified in the respective geographical areas; 5. Automatic ftp upload for GTFS data.

Result/Impact 2

Another result was the development of an institutional round table for the definition of policies in support of multimodal passenger mobility within the Adriatic Macro-region, giving the opportunity to define local and regional objectives for intermodal transportation, sharing of best practices of the field, bringing together several stakeholders for developing an integrated shared information system for transport interoperability.
