The IT2Rail project - how to provide a Europe-wide seamless multi-modal travel experience
Attoma is one of the 27 consortium participants of the IT2Rail project, which as part of the H2020 research programme, aims at developing cross-border rail transport whilst promoting better coordination of long distance door-to-door trips, involving the use of trains, coaches and planes throughout Europe.

The EBSF_2 project - how to make the electric buses of the future a key means of transport which is truly integrated into the urban landscape
Means of transport and their infrastructure are both places to live as well as features of the urban landscape. This is the key idea set out in the “Design Charter for the Electric Buses of the Future” drafted by Giuseppe Attoma Pepe in close cooperation with the other members of the panel of experts led by the UITP, this within the framework of the action-research project “European Bus Systems of the Future” (EBSF_2). The document to be published on 18th April aims at taking advantage of the current trend of electrification of existing fleets, so as to reinvent the bus “passenger experience” of users, the operating companies and the towns they serve, this by drawing on the collective experience of all of the project’s participants.
