FORTIS is co-financed by the Interreg Italy-Slovenia CBC Programme. It aims at improving and harmonising cross-border public transport services and increasing the knowledge and the best practice exchange on vehicle registration and licensing procedures in Italy and Slovenia. This will be achieved through institutional cooperation among the main decision-makers in both countries, who are hampering the implementation of further efficient cross-border connections.
The Central European Initiative – Executive Secretariat is coordinating a group of four partners who will focus on analysing the existing public transport connections along the border, to identify and test new innovative solutions for the improvement of the public transport in the cross-border area. The CEI-ES is responsible for the promotion of the integrated train-bus ticket between Italy and Slovenia, a follow-up activity of the CONNECT2CE project.
FORTIS will provide also two case studies, on administrative and legislative procedures in vehicle registration and licensing procedures and the second one on crossborder maritime connections between Italy and Slovenia.
