With Dora to Palma: EU project launches app prototype for door-to-door travelling information

28.06.18 12:20

All travelling information in one app: from now onwards, passengers heading from Berlin to Palma de Mallorca can test the app prototype by the EU-sponsored project DORA. DORA stands for „door-to-door information for air passengers" and develops a seamless and integrated information system for air travel in Europe. The results collected go into the further development of the app and the integration of more cities. The open system can simply be transferred to other cities or airports.

The DORA app links multimodal travel advice (bus, train, car, taxi, car sharing) to Tegel and Schönefeld with actual and flights and onsite information of both Berlin airports. If there are delays to your journey because of traffic or as a result of changes to flights, passengers are immediately informed by the app and alternative routes are suggested.

DORA – Door-to-door information for air passengers

DORA is a project promoted by the EU in line with the Horizon 2020 programme. The consortium is managed by Eurescom GmbH (European Institute for Research and Strategic Studies in Telecommunications, Germany). This comprehensive information service is possible due to the close cooperation of airports, public transport, urban traffic information centres and the city councils. In Berlin, under the leadership of VMZ Berlin Betreibergesellschaft mbH, the Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH, the Berlin Senate Department for environment, transport and climate protection, the VBB (public transport authority covering the federal states of Berlin and Brandenburg) and the Zentrum Technik und Gesellschaft (centre of technology and society) at the TU Berlin worked together. Furthermore, participants from Spain, France, Greece and Finland are involved in the project.
