Abstract: The objective of this work is to demonstrate the use of Advanced Transport Telematics (ATT) in a multimodal transport environment. The focus of the work is on the integration of ATT methods to increase the share of public transport in the modal-split pattern, improve the efficiency of the available road and transport infrastructure, and enhance the efficiency of multimodal transport networks. The paper describes the characteristics of an integrated traveler information system for two port cities within SCOPE, a DRIVE II project. The system under consideration collects, evaluates, coordinates and disseminates real-time and forecast information on the transport network and service conditions for travelers arriving and departing from the port, by road, bus, rail, ferries and air.
