This paper reviews the development and implementation of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) in Greece by adopting a methodology that uses Key Performance Indicators – KPIs. Based on these indicators ITS implementation in Greece appears to perform in varying ways depending on a number of factors that relate to the local conditions in each urban area. Based on the analysis and quantification of the KPIs selected, the analysis facilitates the identification of some areas on which ITS experts and policy makers should focus for further improvement and speeder implementation. The main problems that are indicated in the study, relate to the fact the large majority of ITS projects implemented in Greece are not adequately documented and do not provide, at least to a limited extent, information over the web regarding their status or their provided services. Another problem area relates to the fact that there are no ITS projects that go beyond the road sector to encompass multiple modes of transport and support intermodality and multimodality. Also, there is a weakness identified for more ITS implementations associated with freight transport and the concept of Mobility as a Service (MaaS).
