Directive on the framework for the deployment of Intelligent Transport Systems in the field of road transport and for interfaces with other modes of transport (2010)
Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) can significantly contribute to a cleaner, safer and more efficient transport system. This directive provides a framework for the coordinated implementation of these innovative transport technologies across the European Union (EU). It aims to establish interoperable and efficient ITS services while leaving EU countries to individually decide which systems to invest in.

INTERESTING INITIATIVES IN THE FIELD OF SUSTAINABLE MOBILITY
CIVITAS Initiative
The CIVITAS Initiative ("City-Vitality-Sustainability", or "Cleaner and Better Transport in Cities") was launched in 2002. Its fundamental aim is to support cities to introduce ambitious transport measures and policies towards sustainable urban mobility. The goal of CIVITAS is to achieve a significant shift in the modal split towards sustainable transport, an objective reached through encouraging both innovative technology and policy-based strategies.

ELTIS - The European Mobility Portal
Eltis facilitates the exchange of information, knowledge and experiences in the field of urban mobility in Europe. It is aimed at individuals working in the field of transport as well as in related disciplines, including urban and regional development, health, energy and environmental sciences.
Eltis supports the creation of urban transport systems, which use less energy and produce fewer emissions, while improving the competitiveness of urban areas and the mobility and quality of life of its citizens. Created more than 10 years ago, Eltis is now Europe's main portal on urban mobility.

Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans
Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans aim to create a sustainable urban transport system in cities. Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans define a set of interrelated measures designed to satisfy the mobility needs of people and businesses today and tomorrow.  They are the result of an integrated planning approach and address all modes and forms of transport in cities and their surrounding area.
