ELTIS - European Local Transport Information ServiceThe European Local Transport Information Service ELTIS is Europe's portal for local transport news and events, transport measures, policies and practices implemented in cities and regions across Europe.
The aim of ELTIS is to provide information and support a practical transfer of knowledge and exchange of experience in the field of urban and regional transport in Europe. It should give the user the opportunity to explore best practices from European cities and regions, to search for specific transport solutions and to be informed about the state of the art in a given transport application. In turn this should help create a more sustainable living environment, one which provides greater accessibility and mobility to its inhabitants.
There are two possibilities to contribute
- If you want to announce an event or to submit news of European interest please have a look on the ELTIS website and sent your text to the person in charge. He will post the text on the website.
- If you want to contribute with a Case Study please goto menu point "Case Studies" and then select "Submit a Case Study" and follow the instructions. Once you have submitted a Case Study it will be checked by the ELTIS team and will be online in a few days.
