Summary
The objective of the ITISS project is to provide real time travel information to transport users while they are on the move. Such information is generally provided now either via the internet or call centre services, although text message alert services are also available in some places. The 3.2 M euro project will develop the delivery of location specific information from existing travel databases to a range of new media, particularly mobile devices and Personal Digital Assistants. By delivering real time information about public transport, the project aims to encourage motorists to make greater use of other of modes, like buses and trains, so cutting car use. ITISS, in which the UK’s Greater Manchester Passenger Transport Executive is leading nine other partners, is trans-national in nature, both because it involves sharing information and addresses issues of common concern, notably reducing traffic congestion.

Objectives

  • To develop a multimedia platform for the collection and dissemination of information at regional, national and transnational levels
  • To demonstrate the viability of a pan-European information system
  • To demonstrate the potential for sharing and providing information at the transnational level
  • To develop existing and innovative media channels for dissemination To transfer knowledge within the consortium
  • To transfer knowledge to others outside the consortium To address the common interest of improving the modal share of public transport
  • To address the common interest of utilising the road network in an optimal fashion
  • To build upon existing partner information applications
  • To develop and demonstrate new information applications To develop and demonstrate an information system which may be accessed / implemented in all ITIS partner cities To assess the potential for inclusion of tourism information services within the ETIW

Activities

Expected Outcomes

  • An improved share of the transport market for public transport A more optimal usage of the transport network for private cars
  • A reduction in the environmental, social, health and financial impacts of the transport industry
  • The improvement of access to the information society
  • The utilisation of the information society to address transportation goals The creation of a transnational platform for the collection, sharing and dissemination of information via appropriate media which may act as a template for a future pan-European system (ETIW)
