Abstract: With the rapid development of economy and the pace of urbanization in our country, the passengers gradually increase their requirements for travelling. The construction of integrated passenger transit system (IPTS) has become an inevitable choice for transport development. On the basis of a brief introduction, the paper points out the way and method to realize IPTS. Since many feasible results of application of ITS have obtained in railway transport system, in the following parts, the paper discusses the promotion of these results from railway transport to urban rail transit, that is, horizontal development strategy of ITS in urban rail transit. In the end, recommendations and suggestions are given for the integrations of ITS in other traditional transport methods.
