unstar this property answer text <p>The Government recognises that there are many potential benefits to be realised from smart transport innovations, across all modes. We also recognise that the Department for Transport has a role to play in ensuring that the most effective innovations are identified and introduced in ways that are legal, safe and maximise the benefits to society.</p><p> </p><p>The Department has a diverse programme of activities underway to fulfil that role. This includes various research projects being funded through Innovate UK, and through the Catapult Centres, and a data discovery project to test whether local transport network planners, operators and users would benefit from local transport data that is more widely shared, accessible and conforms to agreed standards.</p><p> </p><p>The Department is also working with other Government departments, high technology industries, academics and researchers to identify opportunities for collaboration to encourage the use of smart transport innovations. We will consider how best to share the results of this work with local areas in order to support them in using these innovations. The Department does not have a single Smart Cities model for local areas to follow, and it is for them, and their transport operators and suppliers, to determine local priorities and solutions.</p>
