Stakeholder consultation on "EUROPEAN STRATEGY ON COOPERATIVE INTELLIGENT TRANSPORT SYSTEMS"
The Rapporteur on the upcoming CoR opinion on "EUROPEAN STRATEGY ON COOPERATIVE INTELLIGENT TRANSPORT SYSTEMS", Mr Bouke ARENDS (NL/PES), Vice Mayor at Municipality of Emmen and Member of the COTER Commission of the CoR, together with his expert Mr Wouter Couprie invites representatives of the associations of local and regional authorities and other stakeholders for a consultation and exchange of views on this opinion.
There is a strong interrelation between intelligent transport systems and regional development. Smart, sustainable and safe transportation by using C-ITS addresses many regional policy priorities. C-ITS may contribute the most to reducing negative effects of traffic and transport, particularly around parking congestion, air pollution and road safety.
