ITS Hall of Fame award to MINTC
The Ministry of Transport and Communications has received a significant recognition award for its achievements in promoting advanced transport policy and legislation. The ITS Hall of Fame award was presented to the Ministry in the ITS World Congress 2017 in Montreal on 2 November.
Finland is a pioneer in "Mobility as a Service" thinking. Mobility is turning into a comprehensive service that can better meet the needs of the users. This is the concept that the Ministry of Transport and Communications has successfully promoted.
The Ministry gains recognition for its Act on transport services that covers all regulation on transport markets. The Act promotes digitalisation of transport services and is the first in the world to enable uniform and mobile travel chains. A key part of the legislative reform is the opening up of data.
