Research Report 302 Intelligent transport systems: what contributes best to the NZTS objectives?

Published: | Category: Integrated land use and transport systems , Research programme , Research & reports | Audience: General

The purpose of this study has been to document international experience of where the greatest benefits have been gained from the implementation of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS), and to compare these benefits with the key outcomes sought in the New Zealand Transport Strategy (NZTS) and Land Transport Management Act (LTMA).

The resulting report provides guidance on the ways in which different ITS initiatives can contribute to these objectives, with a particular focus on the use of ITS for demand management and in optimising the use of existing land transport infrastructure.
