ITS Standards and Specifications

The design, deployment and use of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) is governed by a range of Standards and Specifications. Our Green List is the only online resource which allows users to easily find all the standards in a single location, with a simple search facility (including topical keywords), and direct links to the actual documents.

Hint - If you know the title of the document you want, enter it in the Title search field. If you know the type of document you want, try entering the series ident in the Specification field (I.E. For equipment specifications this might be the TR, MCH or TOPAS series), or use the Key Words field to find everything that relates to a subject or an item of interest, such as ITS, Traffic Signals, Pedestrian Facilities etc.

An example list of major Key Words and Document Types is provided at the bottom of the page for reference, but if you have a specific search criteria, give it a try!

Also note that the three search fields are linked, which allow you to refine your search (I.E. If you wanted to view Local Transport Notes about cycling, enter LTN in the Specification field and Cycle in the Keyword field).
