Traffic network operators are using several channels to share their traffic related data, on one hand because of legal obligation, on the other hand to ensure a higher level of service for their customers. Of course, the value chain, and the provided content will change a lot with the emerge of connected and automated driving, or with the spread of Mobility-as-a-Service solutions and Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Regulation (AFIR) related data sharing in the near future. This paper gives a comprehensive overview of the current practice in Hungary, introducing the ways of distributing multimodal traffic related information, some existing services that were implemented based on these automatic data channels. The paper also gives an overview on the ongoing transition towards automatic data provision and how the regular road operators’ role change to digital road operators, furthermore the European harmonisation process that was started in the framework of the Napcore project.
