Experiences from a Multimodal ITS Organisation

The mid-term review of the White Paper on Transport and The Greening of transport package stress the importance of sustainable transport and the need for co-modality. There is a growing acceptance that ITS needs to be multimodal and a part of all transport modes. ITS Norway was initiated as a multimodal organization in 2003. There was willingness and clear intention from the Ministries involved and the national transport administration for road, rail, sea and air transport to develop ITS Norway as a multimodal network. The paper focus on the policy behind the multimodal approach, the results and experience gained through the six years of operation and the factors that have influenced the activities and the results, first of all the joint effort to create and develop ARKTRANS; a multimodal framework architecture. The paper also reports on achievements and barriers and gives advice on how to stimulate cooperation for multimodal ITS. This kind of cooperation is coming into demand in all countries where there is a policy for making transport greener and more sustainable.
