FinEst Smart Mobility project - Innovative mobility solutions in a cross-border environment

The ferry connection between Helsinki West Harbour and Tallinn Old City Harbour is one of the busiest in the world with over 8 million annual passengers. Current traffic creates substantial congestion, noise and other negative externalities at both ports and in both cities.
 
FinEst Smart Mobility piloted five ICT solutions in the harbours and adjacent areas, to find solutions for these challenges. The pilots focused on better integration of different transport modes in inner-city and cross-border traffic.
 
The main results of the project:

Improved transport flow of goods
