Transmanche Metro is a new sustainable cross channel multi modal transport and ticketing concept, starting in 2024 with a new express transit shuttle between Calais and Ashford international, connecting with UK and French local and domestic rail. We will be looking to build on the good work progressed by Shift to Rail and International Passenger Rail Service IP 4 initiative, to drive, simplify and improve the ticketing offer across European Countries into the UK. The platform being constructed is a data aggregation layer orchestrating different feeds from transport types, to eventually work towards a one stop ticket and journey shop.
