  • Interviewed France DOT Officials
  • Conducted 4 Case Studies
  • Top-down/Bottom-up Analysis
european policies
European Policies
  • EU Transport Policy for 2010 w/ITS annex
  • e-Europe 2002 Action Plan- IT-competitive Europe- R&D to Accelerate ITS Deployment- Remove Barriers to Private Mobility Services
  • e-Safety Initiative Soon (coop vehicle- highway systems)
european programs
European Programs
  • ITS Deployment- Trans-European Transport Network- National ITS Programs w/ EU Funding - ITS City Pioneers (mainstreaming)- Galileo Civil-use Satellite
  • Trans-European Road Network- 6 Multinational Collaborations- Monitoring, pre/in-trip info, coop cross- border traffic/incident mgmt, TMC networking, ETC, etc.
european research programs
European Research Programs
  • Broad Themes: “Integrated Europe” and “Quality of Life in IT Society”
  • Well Funded: 17.5 Billion Euros (next 5 yrs)
  • Process Promotes Practitioner Involvement
  • Substantial ITS Elements
  • First Order Priority: Reliable/Consistent Data on Transport Demand, Vehicle Flows and Refinement of Forecasting Tools
national example france
National Example: France
  • 2001 Master Plan Objectives- Optimum Use of Existing Infrastructure- Promote Enviro-friendly Modes (Info & Pricing)- Safety
  • State Priority Actions- Lead/Coordinate Multimodal ATIS- Interface State Traffic Mgmt w/ Local & Transit- Integrate Highway/Transit Fare Payment - Software for Decision Support- Data Collection/Dissemination
u s policies programs
U.S. Policies/Programs
  • ITS America 10-year Plan: Culture of Transport Management/Operations
  • USDOT Dialogue on Operations: Proceedings, 2001 Summit (Maryland)
  • Federal ITS R&D: IVI and Clubby
case studies its user services
Case Studies:ITS User Services
  • Traffic Management: Ile de France/Paris
  • Traffic Safety: Truck Digital Tach (EU)
  • Transit: Marseilles
  • Integrated ITS: Los Angeles
case studies interesting aspects
Case Studies:Interesting Aspects
  • Paris/Ile de France:Traffic- Multidepartment w/in France DOT (SIER)- Operational Agreements (SIER/Paris)- Link Travel Times on CMS
  • Marseilles: Transit- Recognized ITS Value by Capital Group- Interaction bwt Fleet and Transit Ops Centers- Integrated Fare Pay’t & Non-transport Uses- Urban Community (MPO type)- Private Providers w/ Incentives to Expand
case studies interesting aspects16
Case Studies:Interesting Aspects
  • Los Angeles IMAJINE: Integrated ITS- Regional/National ITS Architecture- Link to “Early Deployment” Planning- Expanded Countywide w/RIITS Initiative- Model for Demo to Deployment?- Formal Evaluation to Address Synergies
  • EU Digital Tachograph:Safety- Regulatory, Mandated Approach- EU Research/Private Development
findings policy program review
Findings: Policy/Program Review
  • EU and U.S. Roles/Environments Similar- Policy Direction w/Funding Incentives- European National = U.S. State DOTs - Regional/Local Issues & Influences
  • Consistent Theme of Quality Data Needs
  • ITS Recognized as Integrated Framework and Toolbox (U.S. lead on architecture)
findings policy program review20
Findings: Policy/Program Review
  • Europe Transit: Seamless Door - Door Services w/ “Livable Cities” Theme
  • U.S. Focus on Mainstreaming System Mgmt and Organizational Shortcomings
  • European R&D Model Better for Research to ITS Deployment
findings case study reviews
Findings: Case Study Reviews
  • Planning and Funding Processes- Success In Spite of Planning/Funding Process- Resource Gaps for Tech Support and O&M
  • Decision Support Tools- No Customized Tools for ITS/System Mgmt ID’d- Current Methods Undervalue ITS/System Mgmt- Lessons from Others Utilized
  • Deployment Agency Characteristics- Success in Spite of Organizational Structures- IT Expertise Gap: Use of Contractors
findings case study reviews22
Findings: Case Study Reviews

• Partnership Arrangements- Success from Special Regional Partnerships- Issue of Equitable Funding Shares

• Private Sector Products/Services- Some ATIS, but Gov’t Competition- Innovation for Private Transit Services- Digital Tachograph: Industry Refinement of Gov’t R&D

findings policy vs local reality
Findings: Policy vs Local Reality
  • Contrasts- ITS Vision vs Local Political “Hot Buttons” - No Local Rules for Public/Private Partnerships
  • Synergies- Architectures and Standards Helped- EU R&D Fed All European Cases Studied- State-of-the-Practice Info Helped
