It brings in the knowhow from LinkingDanube and can follow the further development within LinkingAlps. KORDIS wants to exploit its activities started with regard to their deployment of an openAPI interface and foster the knowledge transfer between Linking Danube and LinkingAlps. 

DELFI association

DELFI association is operating the national public transport information service and will implement openAPI for transnational linking of services and is interested to align with LinkingAlps implementation (reach interoperabiility). DELFI as project leader and German representative for the implementation of a Europe-wide distributed traveller information system based on CEN-/OJP-interface and existing EU-SPIRIT network benefits from the further extension of transnational cooperation.

Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI)

As part of a national CEF project, the national public transport information service (DELFI) and the existing cross-border information network EU-SPIRIT will be made accessible by openAPI and alignment with LinkingAlps is envisaged (harmonised interfaces). The implementation of the CEF project for EU-wide multimodal travel information (involving DELFI & EU-SPIRIT) will benefit from knowledge exchange and facilitate early harmonisation of interfaces.

Ministry of Ecological and Solidarity Transition - French Agency for Multimodal Information and Ticketing (AFIMB)

AFIMB manages the implementation and the deployment of ITS in France and supports the French policy for multimodal information and ticketing. Furthermore, AFIMB represents the public body responsible for the French NAP and is interested in "linking of services”. It is expected that the outcome will enhance the knowledge of local authorities in ITS domain about “linking of services” and its deployment.

Cityway is a leading company, which provide solutions for mobility in order to help its clients to reach MaaS objectives with intermodal & real-time trip planners and mobility accounts. It is interested to apply LinkingAlps approach as future adopter. Some planers are already integrating distributed journey planning based on private interfaces. Being observer will help Cityway to discover the OJP standards and which impact the project could have for the next generation of distributed journey planers.

Municipality of Maribor (MoM)

The City of Maribors interest is to raise awareness and promote understanding about low-carbon mobility and transport options to improve the modal split in favour of sustainable means of transport. The benefit is to gain new knowledge and experience about OJP implementations and corresponding measures for citizen awareness and engagement for a low carbon mobility – especially public transport and trying to implement them in a local environment.

ELECTRONIC SOLUTIONS SRL (ELSOL)

ELSOL is interested in design and development of distributed multimodal Journey Planners based on Local Journey Planners and on standardised APIs. It brings in the knowhow from LinkingDanube and can follow the further development within LinkingAlps.

Republic of Slovenia, Ministry of Infrastructure (MIS)

The involved department of MIS is responsible for developing multimodal travel and traffic information center in Slovenia. MIS are the operator of the OpenAPI (back-end system) in SIovenia (implemented in LinkingDanube), which will be further developed based on the LA. 

Central European Initiative – Executive Secretariat (CEI)

The CEI has long experience in EU funded projects in the transport sector and posed “connectivity” as one of the key sectors to be implemented in the framework of the CEI Plan of Action 2018-2020.

The methodologies and solutions developed in LinkingAlps could represent a best practice not only for the alpine area but for the broader area of the CEI constituency.

Piedmont Region (PIE)

The interest is to promote the transition from individual motorized transport towards low-carbon options in passenger transport through aligned strategies for connecting information mobility services. The region can benefit from improved mobility information services in order to allow seamless cross-border travel, to facilitate travel planning, promote simplified access to information on mobility, supporting the use of low environmental impact vehicles.
