Rules to boost Intelligent Transport Systems for Safer and more Efficient Transport Agreed

The Commission welcomes the political agreement reached between the European Parliament and the Council on a proposal made by the Commission in 2021 on the revision of the Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) Directive. The revised law will make high-quality and timely data available for services such as multimodal journey planners and navigation services. A smarter and interoperable transport system will allow the more effective management of traffic and mobility across transport modes, enabling users to better combine the most sustainable modes of transport.
