Traveller Information Exchange (TIX)

The Traveller Information Exchange enables users of the transport network to connect with many producers of information through one common standardised information exchange.

The Traveller Information Exchange is an application of the National Telematics Framework, that builds on the core functionality of a common data dictionary, business rules and other common infrastructure. It contributes to the digital transformation of transport by enabling the exchange of information through digital infrastructure.

The Traveller Information Exchange allows a growing number of information producers and information providers to share information with consumers by:

  • Supporting an ‘open exchange’ of information between producers, providers and consumers (making it available to any technology provider through an open standard)
  • Overcoming traditional barriers which inhibit the open exchange of information – creating a better-connected transport network
  • Enabling providers to target specific information from different producers to individual consumers – based on their needs for information during a journey.

This is an important asset in the emerging digital transport infrastructure.

The TIX Ecosystem

Further information

Further information about TIX is provided in the Traveller Information Exchange Overview.

TCA is actively working with road managers and regulators – including ‘off-road’ facilities such as ports, multi-modal facilities and other locations/parties which produce information – to enable the exchange of their information with providers and consumers through the TIX.

How it can be used

TIX allows road users access to information that helps with planning a smarter and safer journey.

It creates a more connected and better informed freight and logistics network and industry by improving the availability of information for optimised journey planning and scheduling.
