PRELIMINARY NOTICE: THE RUC FORUM

The ITS UK Road User Charging Interest Group was established in 2003 to create a forum where Government, industry, operators and academia can share ideas and concerns openly and supportively, to support the timely and efficient introduction of RUC and related ITS applications. The group shares best-practice experience from Europe and more widely via regular meetings, news updates, involvement in consultations and international conferences.

ITS Ireland is a non-profit public/private sector partnership drawn from academic interests, consultancies, equipment suppliers, government bodies, local authorities, representative bodies and transport operators. Their mission is to promote the development and deployment of ITS for safer, more efficient and more sustainable transport.
Joint meetings between our groups continue on 21 November 2017 at the Royal Marine Hotel, Dun Laoghaire. The Forum will feature case studies and professional discussion focused on the operational aspects of sustainable transport solutions. Our well-established groups offer a thought-provoking, informative and informal forum for connecting people and ideas. Policy makers, toll operators, payment providers and highway users are all involved in the measures taken to tackle the challenges of infrastructure upkeep, toxic emissions, climate change and congestion. We are keen to extend invitations to organisations interested in building awareness and cooperation in urban and national transport schemes. Please let us know if you would like to present a case study, propose a discussion topic, demonstrate an innovation or share future plans.Joint meetings between our groups continue on 21 November 2017 at the Royal Marine Hotel, Dun Laoghaire.
