This event will be an opportunity for railways to discuss business opportunities for the first and last mile solutions, with a strong focus on sustainable solutions.
The goal of the workshop is to open a dialogue between railway companies and urban mobility providers for a new mobility offer to exchange best practices and stimulate partnerships and cooperation, in the frame of the new UIC project “Door-to-door solutions”.
Car sharing, car-pooling, bike sharing, scooter sharing, stations as hubs, MaaS – mobility as a service – tools, journey planners, integration with public transport, electric vehicles facilities and integrated offer: these are areas in which railway companies are engaging with passion. New forms of business can be created for the benefits of customers, citizens and environment.
Participants and speakers will include UIC Members and key stakeholders from the sector especially urban mobility providers.

Networking lunch 12.30-14.00
This moment provides the opportunity for UIC members and urban mobility providers to share ideas and create relationships and strategic alliances.
Session 3: Business examples and cooperation models 14.30-16.00
The challenges introduced by new mobility require rail companies to adopt a systemic door-to-door approach and propose travel offers capable to provide the final customer with easy solutions to run the first and last mile in a sustainable, efficient and comfortable way. Some EU rail companies have already acted in this sense, while others are starting now to focus on this important aspect of co-modality. The session will present an overview of door-to-door models already in place as well as new plans to come, providing information on challenges and opportunities in the set-up of partnerships with urban mobility providers.
This will be followed by an open debate with UIC members inspired to launch door-to-door partnerships.
Open debate: Q&A session
Conclusions and next steps 16.00-16.30
