Prior to the scheme no special priority had been granted to public transport in Iasi. Road condition communication for public transport was rudimentary, consisting of of an antenna with a signal repeater. The antenna is placed in the city and receives and transmits the information.
The measure is intended to contribute to increasing the quality of Public Transport in Iasi by addressing problems of travel time and reliability, making Public Transport a more attractive and hassle free option. In this measure Iasi will implement a green light priority system within the CIVITAS plus corridor in order to promote a high quality and energy-efficient bus route. Iasi will define priority routes for public transport vehicles - buses and trams (but also open to taxi-cabs) in the CIVITAS corridor and implement a green light priority system in the CIVITAS corridor for public transport vehicles at 15 signalised intersections.
