ITISS stands for Intermodal Travel Information SystemS and addresses poor and unreliable Public Transport Information, lack of multi-modal integration, congestion and inefficient road usage. These are all symptoms of poor urban transportation planning which could be greatly improved by better co-ordination of travel information. Therefore ITISS integrates existing travel information into a common and compatible framework in a number of European partner sites - South County Dublin, Greater Manchester, Pays de la Loire, The Hague and Cologne. The most visible output of ITISS will be a portal containing travel information from the five partner cities enabling ordinary people to plan intermodal journeys between and within the five cities. The working title of this portal is the ETIW - the European Travel Information Web. Local demonstrator projects in each of the partner cities will be put in place to ensure that all partners can supply the information necessary to the portal. ITISS is taking advantage of the rapidly expanding knowledge base within ICT in order to develop new information channels and media and integrate currently individual ICT channels."
