Passenger Transport ITS Toolkit

By News Editor / Updated: 03 Nov 2016

The Passenger Transport ITS Toolkit is part of a public transport toolkit suite, including the Urban Bus Toolkit and the Public Transport Fares Toolkit.

These toolkits are part of the much more extensive library of reference and capacity-building resources which have been prepared by the World Bank for policymakers and senior technical managers in urban transport.

The toolkit provides a basic understanding of all aspects of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) for urban passenger transport. The toolkit provides a step-by-step guide that helps with planning, designing and implementing ITS to improve the efficiency and attractiveness of the passenger transport systems.

The toolkit provides capacity development support in understanding:

  • The basic characteristics of ITS
  • Evaluation of public transport planning, management and operations functions in assessment of the needs for potential ITS applications
  • ITS system inputs, outputs, information processing, communications and system architecture requirements
  • Estimation of the initial implementation and ongoing operating and maintenance costs of ITS and its benefits
