Barents On Time (KO2020 BoT)
Funded by Kolarctic CBC 2014-2020
Objective of the project
The boundaries between Russia, Finland and Norway are crossed daily by hundreds of travellers. Travelling by bus is not always convenient and efficient: poor connection to domestic bus routes and air routes, no joint information platform with destinations and timetables, limited possibilities for buying tickets online.
“Barents On Time” (BoT) has an objective to provide cross-border travellers with up-to-date tools and services: website with timetable and route search, mobile ticket application and information screens on bus stops. The project will facilitate bus priority at cross-border checkpoints, produce emergency plan to increase safety and efficient timetable.
