Jean Coldefy, Greater Lyon ITS Programme Coordinator, reports on OPTICITIES – a consortium of six European municipalities led by Lyon and supported by industry, research and major European networks – and plans to fast track ‘plug and play’ intelligent transport system (ITS) applications and tools.
Grand Lyon is leading the OPTICITIES project to meet the challenges of an integrated multimodal transport system.

The Aimsun Online decision support system will be implemented within CRITER, aiding in the management of the city’s integrated multimodal transport system.
