The Swedish Transport Administration (Trafikverket) ITS Action Plan for the Rail Sector

Intelligent transportation system (ITS) was via the work with ITS World Congress in Stockholm 2009 established as an issue in the Swedish rail sector, even if the Swedish rail sector has been working with intelligent transport systems for a long time without calling it ITS. Right after the ITS World Congress in Stockholm 2009 the Swedish Rail Administration (since April 1 2010 a part of the Swedish Transport Administration) started to interview rail sector actors (train operating companies passenger and freight, infrastructure management, train management, logistics companies, public transport companies, freight transport buyers), about their needs and demands from a business perspective regarding data/information/IT-solutions, i.e. ITS, provided by the Swedish Rail Administration. During 2010 the work has continued with analyzing the current and planned situation within the Swedish Transport Administration. The actors needs have then been compared with the current and planned situation at the Swedish Transport Administration to find the gaps to be filled. In June 2011 the action plan was decided. It will be presented to the rail actors late August 2011. The paper describes the work that has been done to establish the action plan, examples of actual work within the action plan that has been done so far or work that is planned to be done.
