Urban areas host 70% of the EU population, and it is estimated that this will increase up to 84% by 2050, exacerbating the EU cities’ current daunting problems such as air quality and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. In 2019, the transport sector was accountable for 27% of total EU GHG emissions, of which road transport accounted for approximately 72%. Many cities are looking to promote public and nonmotorised forms of transport to provide access to safe, affordable, accessible, and sustainable transport systems for all citizens. Many cities in Europe and worldwide are witnessing an increasing interest in shared and multi-modal mobility services using modes such as carsharing, bikes, ride-hailing, e-scooters facilitated by the emergence of intermediary mobility-on-demand platforms. Mobility services accessible ‘on demand’ can be achieved by an integrated Multimodal Intelligent Transport System (M-ITS) incorporating both motorised and non-motorised transport as well as private and public systems through the concept of Mobility as a Service (MaaS) Sustainable mobility alternatives such as a fully integrated and seamless multimodal mobility system that can be made widely available with the communication and computation advancements. RE-ROUTE an integRated intElligent multi-modal tRanspOrt infrastrUcTurE: distributed localised decision-making at the network edge forms an international, interdisciplinary, and inter-sectoral network of institutions with complementary skills, working on a joint research and knowledge transfer programme to improve the multi-modal Mobility-as-a- Service transport integration through localised Edge-based real-time data sharing, decentralised decision making, and localised network that places the processing at the proximity of data, contribute to evidence-based policy and physical infrastructure development and developing a unique skill set for the participating partners and improving their career prospects in the emerging ITS job market.
