Blazing a mobility trail

Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) are not a novelty in Polish cities. Yet, the current scale of deployment of DPIS, traffic and fleet management systems across all bigger urban areas in Poland is staggering. 

The availability of EU funds and the growing importance of mobility on the political agenda have often shifted ITS projects to the top of investment priorities.

In cities such as Warsaw, Szczecin, Poznań, Gdańsk, Bydgoszcz or Wroclaw ITS have proved to make a substantial difference in facilitating seamless, comfortable and cost-effective mobility.
