CBPT study update: Inventory of cross-border public transport services completed

For the first time, information about cross-border public transport services in border regions along all internal EU borders and borders with Liechtenstein, Norway, Switzerland and the UK has been collected systematically. The inventory provides information on rail, bus, ferry and tram services, which ease cross-border accessibility for citizens in border areas.

Information on nearly 7,000 services is available. This includes details on the origin and destination of each service, its line name, operator, stop locations, number of stops and service frequency. The inventory is published in an interactive web map application.

Visit the CBPT collection here to see what services are available in your region. If you notice that something is missing or not correctly displayed, please send an e-mail to our CBPT address and help to improve the inventory.

In order to further develop the CBPT collection, we are carrying out an in-depth analysis of the inventory. Please look out for first results of this analysis which will be released soon.

Really impressive tool ! I am sure it will be very useful for all cross-border stakeholders and transport operators.

If I am not wrong, the five new bus lines in the Espace Catalan Transfrontalier seem to be missing :

We (MOT) will let you know if we spot other missing services across French borders.
