Real-time transport information architecture is described within the R&D programme (AINO) on real-time transport information in 2004-2007 of the Ministry of Transport and Communications Finland. The architecture describes the service processes for transport and public transport networks as well as traveler. It also describes development paths for these process areas. In the target situation, real-time multimodal network based guidance system is in use offering information from all transport modes for traveler, both before and during the journey. However, a lot of R&D and implementation work will need to be done to reach this target. The most essential architecture solutions are the following: Prediction of transport situation in urban area with real-time transport information, Real-time road transport route planning, Real-time information about all public transport modes in journey.fi -service and real-time road traffic incident data for drivers. Airplanes and passenger ships play a major role when connecting Finnish travel planners and information systems to those of neighboring countries. For this reason, Finland has played an active role in defining the Baltic Sea passenger ship data pool within the Euro-regional VIKING project supported by the European Commission.
