The Website of the Month: EC MULTIMODAL PLANNERS 

EC DG INFSOThis month EPN Consulting has chosen one of the European Commissione websites and, in particular, that one dedicated to the Multimodal Planners.

 

The challenges of climate change, increasing congestion and fuel costs mean we need to find smarter ways to travel.

Multimodal travel - using different types of transport for one journey - is part of the answer. It may not only be better for the environment, it may also be easier on our wallets.

Multimodal travel is by its very nature more complex. That is where multimodal journey planners come in. These online tools can help travellers plan a journey from A to B detailing the different types of transport to take, times and even fares. More information can be found at the link below.
