This report documents the results from the MultiRIT research project and documents · The MultiRIT multimodal framework architecture for travel information services. · The multimodal travel planner pilots developed in the project. They demonstrate different strategies and possibilities with respect the realisation of travel information services · A description of algorithmic solutions and limitations with respect to multimodal travel planning · A feasibility study on the provision of accurate price information in travel information services The MultiRIT framework is based on ARKTRANS, the Norwegian framework architecture for multimodal freight and passenger transport, and the results will be fed back into ARKTRANS. Through a holistic approach, open services for request and provision of travel information and travel information services are specified. The approach includes the identification and specification of the generic roles of the stakeholders involved; the required functionality, the processes; and the interactions between the roles. The report concludes that the open services enable a flexible organisation of multimodal travel information services, and such services also arrange for new and improved functionality like the provision of dynamic information (e.g. delays and other deviations), accessibility information and context dependent information.
