Europe consults stakeholders on ITS Action Plan
Creation date: 26 March 2008
On 26 March 2008, the EC organised a public consultation workshop in order to collect stakeholders’ views on an Intelligent Transport System (ITS) Action Plan in preparation.
ITS can also plays a crucial role in the mobility problem. This is the third theme addressed by the draft Action Plan. If Europe wants to achieve better mobility of people and goods, efforts should be done in providing more reliable real-time traffic and travel information and improving the efficiency of logistic chains (e-Freight). The consultation workshop brought forward some framework for discussion on the various themes and highlighted the strategic importance to assess the impact which ITS applications will have in the real life of the citizen.
Various European policy instruments were reviewed, which could be used to create synergies and allow ITS to contribute with its full potential to policy goals. These include financial support, through via existing programmes, standardisation, legislative measures and other soft measures.
