CIVITAS Case Study - Public Transport Priority and Traffic Control in Monza

Through CIVITAS, Monza implemented a traffic priority system for public buses, which was an important goal for the city. Thanks to an intelligent transport system (ITS) approach, Monza managed to achieve considerable results by enhancing the use of automatic vehicle location / automatic vehicle monitoring (AVL/AVM) and Urban Traffic Control (UTC) systems. AVL/AVM identifies the position and the delay of each bus in real time.
