The European Parliament (EP) and the Council have reached a political agreement on the legislative proposal for "Intelligent Transport Systems" (ITS) presented by the Commission in 2021. Once the legislation adopted by the European Parliament and the Council, the new rules will be published in the Official Journal of the European Union and will enter into force.
The proposed changes are considered to be a significant step making connected and automated multimodal mobility a reality, as targeted by the Sustainable and Smart Mobility Strategy.
Within the scope of the proposal, there are changes concerning connected and automated mobility, booking and ticketing services, enhancing the communication between vehicles and infrastructure, as well as multimodal mobility.
As part of the proposal, new speed limits, roadworks and multimodal access nodes will be made available to users in digital platforms, allowing users to access information more easily regarding road safety and infrastructure. Additionally, with the planned implementation of the new system (Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems, C-ITS), vehicles and road infrastructure information will be communicated for example to warn about unexpected events, such as a traffic jam ahead.
Once the adoption process is completed by the European Parliament and the Council, the new rules will be published in the Official Journal of the European Union and will enter into force 20 days later.
