EC’s ITS plans likely to apply to cities and regions

The European Commission has adopted the 2018-2022 Work Programme of the ITS Directive. It covers a range of areas including legally-binding rules relating to the publication of transport data in a standardised form covering all roads in Europe.

Other activities in this work programme address interoperable payment/ticketing, information on charging/refuelling points, access to in-vehicle data, continuity of traffic management services, C-ITS and eCall. If these activities lead to new or revised EC legislation, the impact may be substantial for city and regional transport authorities, especially those organisations that have not yet established procedures to supply transport data to a national data point.
