REGIONE ABRUZZO Experimentation of an innovative transport system to improve mobility of disadvantaged people taking into account the efficacy and the economy of the service TWIST Transport With a Social Target INTERREG III B - CADSES code 3B091

REGIONE ABRUZZO SPECIFIC OBJECTS The TWIST project aims at reducing social exclusion from transport: 1.acting from a geographic standpoint, as to marginalization and scarce accessibility in internal, mountain areas and in urban area suburbs. 2.acting from a social standpoint, as to the exclusion of disadvantaged people from the right to move, due to reduced motor capacity or to social and economic reasons.
REGIONE ABRUZZO PROJECT TARGETS Internal areas Urban area suburbs Mountain areas Elderly people Disabled Minors Emigrants Low income people
REGIONE ABRUZZOACTIONS 1.Assessing social and economic conditions as well as transport demand and supply in the implementation areas 2.Planning the system to implement with the technical assistance support 3.Implementing the system 4.Monitoring the implemented system 5.Referring the testing results to the competent assessing bodies 6.Turning the project into guidelines to convey to EU authorities so as to provide the basis for new sector strategies

REGIONE ABRUZZOSTEPS Analysing present transport systems and the current passenger demand -REALISED- Testing new models leading “local” disadvantaged systems towards a European quality standard - REALISED- Monitoring the new transport system through the systems agreed upon -TO BE REALISED- Reproducing the programming, managing and control system identified in all similar areas in EU - TO BE REALISED-
REGIONE ABRUZZO Through Twist project, Abruzzo Region intends to: Repeat a highly technological project Validate a draft programme plan: system of analysis-technical design for transport adaptable to the requirements of the areas-use of advanced technology-cost of monitoring results Assessing together with the local authorities the inclusion of call services in mountainous areas where high technology DRT systems may provide better performance, including direct services to school/work Replace traditional LPT services in timeframes with lesser demand with a call system to the main railway lines/road systems ensuring simultaneous circulation inside the area in question and direct connections to health- cultural-social structures within short distances of each other.
REGIONE ABRUZZO OUR CURRENT AIMS Actions 4, 5 and 6 are important for transferring the TWIST model to all areas of transport in the EU with similar characteristics. The transferability of the model is the strong point of the project; to realise this, all responsible partners must complete the following activities by 30th June WP 4.8: Reporting the use of the service (through the control parameters) RIO – KTEL; WP 4.9: Analysis of experimentation data and finalisation of the theoretical model. RIO – TRANSDANUBIAN; WP 4.10: Analysis of experimentation data and hypothesis of transferability. RIO – TRANSDANUBIAN WP 6: Monitoring. TECHNOSTART
REGIONE ABRUZZO TRANSFERABLE MODEL TWIST aims at implementing a common transnational strategy for territory development in order to optimise transport organisation in disadvantaged and marginalized areas from both a geographic and environmental standpoint, according to local requirements and with the object of comparing and eliminating “regional” differences and disadvantages. This specific object may be achieved through the possibility to reiterate the project in all European regions and to develop further actions at a EU level by the spreading of best-practices. Testing results will provide a new way to organise and manage transport services in “weak” areas, granting the mobility and the circulation of people and goods, both within the weak areas and towards national and international transport systems, thus promoting economic activities and reducing migrant phenomena.
REGIONE ABRUZZO From TWIST to the local planning of DRT systems Action required Identify the EU-National-Regional sector regulations covering DRT- Demand Responsive Transport- Services Identify the definition and classification of DRT services in the regulations in force Introduce the necessary modifications to the regulations in force for the application of TWIST Establish the objectives to be pursued through DRT according to the choices of TWIST Choose the competent bodies for implementation on the basis of the principle of subsidies Choose the areas of transport for implementation through the system of indicators constructed from analysis of TWIST
REGIONE ABRUZZO From TWIST to the local planning of DRT systems Action required Design the DRT services according to the TWIST transport design model Introduce procedures authorising the exercise of DRT services compatibly with ordinary Local Public Transport (LPT) and provided in the same areas Improve the regulations governing safety in exercising LPT services Planning the forms of coordination provided for integration between DRT and ordinary LPT Provide for forms of financing the DRT services re-planning the part of existing LPT services with lowest demand and transforming it into DRT services serving and circulating in the areas chosen
REGIONE ABRUZZO Replicate a highly technological project Validate a planning scheme: system of technical analysis-design of transport services adaptable to the needs of different areas – use of advanced technology – cost of monitoring results Assess together with local authorities the insertion of call services in mountainous areas where high technology DRT systems may provide the best performance, including direct services to school/work Replace the traditional LPT services during the hours of less demand with a call system serving the main rail/road lines, ensuring internal area circulation at the same time and also a direct link to the main health, cultural and social structures within a short distance. Work in progress: starting with the Twist project the Abruzzo Region intends to:
