Initially the project was planned for three years, current developments in different areas have unfortunately delayed the progress within the project.

For developments in the field of tariffing we had to wait on national decisions, for a planned ticketing project the development partners from outside of the EMR area were necessary and this required a national funding. Also, in the field of electric buses the technical development had an influence on the project and the implementation as initially planned is not possible anymore.

In early 2020 the partners have handed in a change request for an extension of the project. When finalizing the change request, it became clear, that the Corona pandemic will have an impact on the project. Interreg offered an additional extension of 6 months to all projects. The change request was approved, so the project is extended until March 2022 and the planned activities can be implemented.
