Key Messages

ITS can play an enabling role in the implementation of sustainable mobility interventions such as travel demand management, improved accessibility to public transit and safety assurance. In cities like London and Singapore, ITS has been considered as a traffic management and road charging measure to mitigate congestion. ITS initiatives implemented in cities such as Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Indore, Mysore, etc. primarily include traffic management and public transport operations (passenger information system, fare collection, traffic control centre, vehicle tracking). However, the role of ITS for urban transport should not be limited to stand-alone applications. An integration of the various applications to create a holistic approach for the utilisation of ITS applications is still missing in Indian cities.
