Interchanges play a key role in the integration of the urban mobility system and in enabling good intermodal solutions. Their efficiency is therefore essential to achieve sustainable transport objectives in Europe. The European co-funded project NODES1-4 (New Tools for Design and Operation of Urban Transport Interchanges) will develop a toolbox to allow practitioners to assess and benchmark their new or upgraded interchange and to improve its performance.
