Welcome to DATEX II



COVID-19 is affecting all of our lives. It impacts our private and work life in an unprecedented way. No one can tell at the moment how things will evolve and what restrictions for conventions, traveling and social distancing will stay in place until when.

This uncertainty affects of course also the set-up of this year’s DATEX II Forum. As our main goal for the Forum has always been to bring the DATEX II community together to exchange experiences, we prefer to organize a physical Forum in Paris. However, your health and safety must come first.

Therefore we decided to organize the 6th DATEX II Forum in a different way:


● A series of webinars starting on the 25th of November 

● A physical Forum on 9/10 June 2021 in Paris


This enables us to share with you the tremendous progress and interesting new capabilities of DATEX II already this year and to bring together the DATEX II community in the first half of next year.







You have come to the right place for information on DATEX II. The standard for the exchange of traffic related data.


This website is gradually growing, visit often to benefit from updates as soon as possible.

Enabling the Traffic Services of Tomorrow

Together, DATEX II and TN-ITS are taking on the challenge of interoperability of standards in the traffic management domain. By taking small steps, with a coalition of the willing, we aim to start improving the current situation. The focus in the first stage will be on developing semantical interoperability between DATEX II and TN-ITS within the scope of Management of Electronic Traffic Regulations (METR).

'Building a Data Layer' - Digital Transport Days

One of the sessions at the 2019 Digital Transport Days in Helsinki focused on (the future of) National Access Points in Europe: ‘Building a data layer: Network of national (data) access points -NAP’. The idea of launching a bottom-up group of NAPs and National Bodies (NBs) was presented by EU EIP expert Timo Hoffmann, with the goal to exchange knowledge and experiences, common approaches, data standards, how to get data from international organisations, etc.

DATEX II JSON schema support
