About us

ITxPT is a non-profit association open to all companies and organizations with an interest in developing public transport into the most efficient, sustainable and attractive means of travel. Its members are a mix of industry, operators and authorities from all over the world. 

The mission of the ITxPT Association is to enable interoperability between IT systems in Public Transport by offering public specification of an IT architecture based on standards with open interfaces for on-board, over-the-air and back-office IT systems.

The ITxPT governance is fairly shared between decision makers (public transport authorities and operators) and industry (vehicle manufacturers and IT suppliers).


Together with our members, we work on public transport interoperability in an international context, creating and improving bridges between existing or missing models, gathering best practices and designing specifications for a concrete interoperable implementation.

The governance of ITxPT is simple, transparent and democratic, based on its statutes as a non-profit association, composed of the entities described below which follow operating rules driven by functional needs and aiming at providing effective implementation specifications. The ITxPT association is funded by membership fees.
