KLASTER ITS (K-ITS): The Polish Intelligent Transportation Systems Cluster is a young cluster that has been registered in September, 2013 under the Polish name of Klaster inteligentnych systemów transportowych (KLASTER ITS).

So far, 28 organisations including private enterprises, universities and research units, public authorities and non-governmental organisations are members of the cluster, which is coordinated by ITS POLSKA, a professional Public-Private initiative dedicated to development and deployment of ITS technologies to enhance safe, efficient and environmental friendly transportation system.

Electronic billing, pricing and control systems in communication and transport; 6. Intelligent Transport Systems for rail; 7. Shared Services Centre and 8. Smart city.
