Sustainable transport and mobility in the tourism regions along the Danube
The project aims to establish sustainable mobility along the Danube in order to develop sustainable tourism and transport in an environmentally friendly way in the Danube region. The tourism income of the regions will increase because the sights located farther from the river will be more easily accessible for tourists as well. The development of sustainable transport will stimulate environmentally friendly mobility resulting in the reduction of greenhouse and exhaust gas emissions and noise pollution, as well as in the increase of services available for local residents. The results of the project will have a positive impact on both the region’s economic development and the quality of life of the local people.
To achieve these objectives, the Transdanube project brings the transport and tourism sectors closer together, and thus strengthens the currently weak cooperation.
