From the outset of the project the Project Team has spent significant effort on reaching out to as many stakeholders as possible in order to ensure broad acceptance of the Phase One work and deliverables. The mobilisation has been largely successful and the project has established a network with more than 100 experts from a functionally and geographically diverse group of railways and ticket vendors that participate in developing and reviewing the Phase One outputs. There have been more than 20 interdisciplinary working meetings so far that helped solidify a constructive working atmosphere.
The project has also helped trigger initiatives by sector and Ticket Vendor organisations as well as by individual actors supporting the realisation of the TAP TSI objectives. The Project Team has established liaison with a significant number of these initiatives and will continue to seek synergies. Yet, a lot needs to be done to keep momentum and to ensure the trustful working relationship will persist in and beyond Phase One. The Steering Committee can support the Project Team by keeping TAP TSI on the agenda of their constituencies.
