Dear Friends of the INTERFACE Initiative!

Dear Readers!

An important year lies behind us and exciting challenges lie ahead of us:

  • The implementation of the dynamic passenger information system between Rostock-Gedser and Nykøbing has entered its final stage: At different points on the transport chain intermodal real-time information is already provided to passengers - at bus stops between Rostock main station and ferry port, inside the passenger terminal in Rostock and in the internet at
  • We achieved significant and lasting improvements of the passenger ferry connections between Poland and Bornholm. It is a great success for our initiative that Kołobrzeska Żegluga Pasażerska`s (KZP) revitalized the line Darłowo - Nexø, and will operate it in addition to its core service Kołobrzeg – Nexø in the coming years. The year 2014 was used for an extensive kick-off marketing campaign for the connection. Also the construction of the new passenger terminal in Darłowo is in full swing now and will be completed in next April. From the 2015 season, therefore, both Darłowo and Nexö will offer high standard facilities for the passengers.

I hope you enjoy reading this newsletter- and if not already done yet, please visit your neighbour – whether you are from North Denmark, Rostock Region, Bornholm, Zachodniopomorskie – it is always worth. Much has been done in the meantime.

Walk the Baltic- take the Ferry!
