Policy note ITS and urban traffic management
|< Prev||Next >|
The CIVITAS initiative was launched in 2002 and its aim is to support cities to introduce ambitious transport measures and policies towards sustainable urban mobility. Transport telematics is one of its research areas and work in this area of CIVITAS has led to the publication of a policy note on ITS and urban traffic management. TrafficQuest was involved in the discussion of what this note had to address. The policy note provides information and guidance to help municipalities select sustainable, environmentally friendly and cost-efficient ITS and traffic management measures in order to meet European, national and local goals. It is a step-by-step guide that starts with the positioning of ITS and traffic management in the urban mobility context and then provides a structured approach to selection of services and measures. In addition to this guide the note also provides a measure catalogue offering measure descriptions, benefits and possible barriers, as well as insights on expected future developments and practical examples of measures implemented in cities.
