Programme funding: 177709 Total budget: 257990 Duration: 01.03.2019 – 31.03.2021

The boundaries between Russia, Finland and Norway are crossed daily by hundreds of travelers. Traveling by bus is not always convenient and efficient: poor connection to domestic bus routes and air routes, no joint information platform with destinations and timetables, and limited possibilities for buying tickets online.

The project “Barents On Time” (BoT) has an objective to increase cross-border traffic, tourism and cooperation by establishing a solid, safe, accessible and user-friendly cross-border bus transport network in the region and improving the attractiveness of public transport.
The specific objective of the project was to provide cross-border travelers with up-to-date tools and services for using public transport.
