PROCEED Project has come to an end! 

After more than 3 years of interesting research activities, PROCEED was officially finished last January 2010.  


All findings of the research conducted within PROCEED have been synthesised to produce the "Guidelines for High Quality Public Transport". These practical guidelines include the most important experiences and have been designed to help decision makers, public transport planners and operators to efficiently and effectively develop, upgrade, finance and manage urban bus systems and related mobility services.


These Final Reports and Study Materials have been revised and approved by the European Commission.
