Abstract: Multimodal travel information includes static and dynamic travel and traffic data covering at least two modes of transport and allowing the possibility to compare transport modes. According to EU directives, EU-wide multimodal travel information services should be accurate and available across borders to various users. They should be accessible through appropriate National Access Points, one of whose main tasks is mutual interaction for the exchange of travel and traffic information, which EU member states should provide according to the EU Intelligent Transport Systems Directive (EU ITS Directive) and some delegated regulations. The quality of data is one of the key concerns regarding provisioning of multimodal travel information. This plenary speak provides a brief analysis of basic requirements, key stakeholders and required data categories, which are presented together with the system architecture and functional requirements on a conceptual level.
