The European Commission welcomes the final approval today of the revised Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) Directive. It will make high-quality and timely data available for services such as multimodal journey planners, navigation platforms, and emergency services.
Access to better data will allow the more effective management of traffic and mobility across transport modes, enabling users to better combine the most sustainable modes of transport. It is also a necessary enabler for connected and automated mobility, as targeted by the Sustainable and Smart Mobility Strategy.
This legislation was presented by the Commission in December 2021 as part of a European Green Deal package of initiatives for more efficient and sustainable transport.
Now that is has been formally approved by both the European Parliament and the Council, the new legislation will enter into force 20 days after publication in the EU's official journal. Member States will then have 24 months to transpose it in national law.
