Summary

Table of Contents

The term Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) refers to information and communications technology applied to transport infrastructure and vehicles. Berg Insight’s definition of ITS for public transport includes systems installed in public transport vehicles as well as at terminals, stops, depots and similar. Included are also backoffice IT systems which ensure that public transport services can be planned, scheduled and managed to achieve efficient operations. An important part of ITS for public transport is further solutions providing travellers with updated information about routes, departure times, possible disturbances and connecting services. The history of these different types of solutions dates back several decades and current state-of-the-art solutions include for example real-time intermodal and multi-operator journey planners, automated fare collection systems using contactless cards or NFC-enabled handsets for account-based ticketing, and advanced mobility analytics software. 


Public transport plays an increasingly important role in societies as a result of continuing population growth in cities and shifting consumer preferences. Approximately 60 billion and 13 billion public transport passenger journeys are carried out in Europe and North America respectively each year. Available modes include for example local and regional buses and trolleybuses, regional and suburban rail transport, metros and trams, and local waterborne passenger transport services. In 2017, the number of registered buses and coaches in Europe and North America reached 806,000 vehicles and 545,000 vehicles respectively, not including school buses. The economic value of public transport services in Europe is estimated to around €_155–165 billion per year, while the corresponding number in North America is around € 70–80 billion. 

Berg Insight is of the opinion that the market for ITS in public transport will continue to grow in the coming years. Challenges such as urbanisation, climate change and traffic congestion continue to spur investments in public transport ITS, contributing to a positive market situation. Individual markets may however experience temporary fluctuations, depending on the political climate, austerity measures and local developments. The total market value of public transport ITS for buses and trams in Europe is forecasted to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.8 percent from € 1.56 billion in 2018 to reach €_2.16 billion by 2023. The penetration of on-board computers with GPS location functionality and wireless communications in buses and trams in Europe is estimated to increase from 85.7 percent in 2018 to 93.7 percent in 2023, however varying considerably between regional markets. In North America, the total market value of public transport ITS is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 7.3 percent from € 1.07 billion in 2018 to reach € 1.52 billion in 2023 and the penetration rate is estimated to increase from 89.0 percent in 2018 to 96.0 percent in 2023. 

A group of international aftermarket solution providers have emerged as leaders on the market for public transport ITS. Major providers across Europe and North America include Canada-based Trapeze Group and Germany-based INIT with significant installed bases in both regions. Clever Devices and Conduent hold leading positions on the North American public transport ITS market, and the latter is also an international provider of fare collection systems. Clever Devices is moreover about to expand into Europe, where the UK is the primary target. Additional companies with major market shares in North America include Cubic Transportation Systems and Avail Technologies. Examples of companies with major market shares on national markets in Europe include ENGIE Ineo and RATP Smart Systems which hold leading positions in France. Vix Technology, Flowbird and Ticketer are moreover major providers on the UK market, while IVU is a dominant player in the German-speaking part of Europe. Other significant players include the Spanish groups GMV, Indra and Grupo ETRA, French Thales, Atron in Germany, Scandinavian FARA and Consat Telematics, and the Austria-based companies Swarco and Kontron Transportation. Volvo Group is moreover a notable player from the vehicle OEM segment, while companies such as Scania, Iveco, Daimler and New Flyer also offer some conventional OEM telematics features for their buses. 

The outlook for the public transport ITS market is positive, as several major developments encourage increased investments in such technologies. The ITS market is likely positively affected by international public transport-related initiatives such as the ITxPT Association as well as APTA’s standards programs for public transport vehicles and ITS. The development of ITS has in recent years focused on increasing the level of integration and utilising technology advancements for fare collection purposes. Another major driver is the ongoing global developments related to the concept of smart cities, where ITS in general and public transport ITS in particular constitute key elements to enable sustainable smart mobility.
