Through the creation of an integrated telematic system for public transport, which includes dynamic information systems with the use of advanced technologies (installation of Telematic Information Displays), the EYKINHSH project aims mainly in promoting smart, sustainable and alternative mobility in the transnational area. The project impact is expected to contribute in strengthening Public Transport as a mobility mode among citizens and visitors by increasing its attractiveness. In general, it is expected to also achieve decrease of the environmental footprint by transportation in the target areas.

More specifically the project objectives concern:

  • Improving the quality of the urban environment through the decrease of traffic congestion resulting from the increased use of Public Transport
  • Decreasing CO2 emissions and other environmental effects resulting from the increased use of Public Transport
  • Improving management skills and decreasing the administration cost of transport infrastructure in the target areas
  • Improving the quality of life of citizens and the tourist experience of visitors resulting from better and more precise information regarding the routes of public transport
  • Decreasing the number of accidents due to the decrease in the use of private vehicles

The project objectives are completely in line and contribute in the special objective of the programmatic priority. The project effectiveness in relation to the achievement of the objectives will be evaluated by measurable objectives. The quantitative objectives that are evident of the successful implementation of the project objectives, concern:

  • Increase of Public Transport users:>11%- percentage of correct information/ better service for users: =100%- decrease of waiting time at bus stops:>80%
  • Decrease of travel time of public transport:>7%- decrease of travelling by private vehicle:>5%- increase of visitors/tourists:>4 %
  • Decrease of traffic problems:>7%- decrease of environmental negative impact:>4% and according to the National Air Quality Plans.
