ITS UK updates its “Blue Guide” for Local Authorities


ITS (UK), the Intelligent Transport Society for the United Kingdom, has issued a new edition of its guide to deployment, business cases and funding of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) for Local Authorities.

The “Blue Guide” for Local Authorities is aimed at transport professionals who do not have detailed ITS knowledge and experience. It explains what can be a jargon and acronym infested topic clearly and comprehensively.

There is also a “Blue Guide” from ITS (UK) on European Institutions and more Guides are planned.

Matthew Williams of ITS (UK) Members Dorset County Council, introducing the Guide, said “Authorities are facing similar pressures to manage their highways by warning and informing the travelling public, reducing car use and promoting sustainable transport, whilst demonstrating increased efficiency from reduced budgets.  ITS can help meet these aims, but can at first appear daunting.”
