One of the basic priorities that all urban and outermost areas are required to follow according to the European Directives for Mobility and Transport as well as the targets set for Europe 2020 – which are adopted completely by the Business Plan “Infrastructure for Transport, Environment and Sustainable Development 2014-2020” and the Regional Programs of the same period – is the strengthening of sustainable mobility and the promotion of travelling using the Public Transport which will serve the target of “mass transport” and at the same time will ensure the “quality” of transportation and lower emissions. Evidently, these objectives reflect the different elements of the European transport instructions, aiming to ensure sustainable mobility for all citizens, drastic decrease of CO2 emissions in transportation and full usage of technological advancements. Regarding usage of technological advancements, since 2008 the European Union has promoted the action plan for the dissemination of smart systems in transportation in Europe COM (2008) to promote a turn towards a more sustainable way of travelling and aiming to upgrade the quality of the environment, equality in terms of accessibility and information and also the availability of best financial practices for citizens. Evidently smart systems can make the life of citizens better, through “smart”, financially efficient and “green” transportation while at the same time they promise to revolutionize the traffic management centres of cities, through the collection and processing of information for the best management of transportation infrastructure and the timely response in case of accidents.
