Analysis by Ludovic MIRAULT
The transformation of public transport is considered by the French government and local authorities as a key driver to meet our energy and climate transition goals. Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) provide the opportunity to encourage people to opt for railway over other modes of transport.
How Intelligent Transport Systems are transforming rail transport ?
Trains may be a major ally in our fight against climate change. But in the daily lives of commuters, their fiercest "rivals" are always standing in their way: cars! So, how do you attract and retain increasingly demanding passengers? What means should we employ and what benefits should we promote to encourage users to abandon their cars and take the train instead? Intelligent Transport Systems can provide an answer to these questions, by improving the quality of service and guaranteeing an increasingly pleasant travel experience.
