The European Commission has funded a project called GoF4R, through the Horizon 2020 Shift2Rail programme. This project brings together technical and socio-economic research and innovations The project will define a structure for integrating and sharing data across disparate transportation operators that can subsequently be used to create seamless – door to door– mobility services using any form of transportation service.
