Background & Policy context

An intelligent transport system (ITS) framework for public transport in Germany has already been designed to implement the objectives and requirements of the EU's ITS Directive 2010/40/EU in national projects.

This public transport -ITS framework for a Germany-wide network of factors was developed in a previous research project (i.e. development of an public transport-ITS framework architecture in Germany with integration of European ITS guidelines with relevance for public transport, final report March 2014) and closes the gap between the "road" action plan (end of initial phase) and the country-specific master plans in the concept phase.

The ITS framework provides a clear model and formulates recommendations for action and measures for the actors in public transport with regard to their roles and business models ensuring they adhere to the rules and framework conditions as well as implementing information and communication technologies.


The project aims to provide an IV public transport reference architecture for the field of passenger information, which spans all transport modes and operating systems. To this end, minimum quality levels for passenger information on the competitive allocation of transport services should be established and nationwide minimum quality levels for passenger information in public transport should be defined. In addition, a significant increase in the response to incidents and defects as well as customer-specific responses should be achieved.
