This moment provides the opportunity for UIC members and urban mobility providers to share ideas and create relationships and strategic alliances.

14:00 - 15:30 Session 3: Business examples and cooperation models

The challenges introduced by the new mobility, require rail companies to adopt a systemic door-to-door approach and propose travel offers capable to provide the final customer with easy solutions to run the first and last mile (home-rail station; rail station-final destination) in a sustainable, efficient and comfortable way.

Some EU rail companies have already acted in this sense, while others are starting now to focus on this important aspect of co-modality. The session will present an overview of door-to-door models already in place as well as new plans to come, providing information on challenges and opportunities in the set up of partnership with urban mobility providers.
