ABSTRACT
This article focuses on how the Institute of Logistics and Transport is responsible for awarding accreditation of Internet sites providing public transportation information. The institute has been recognized by the Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions as an independent professional body able to draw upon the expertise of its members to determine and to monitor the consistent application of appropriate standards and so to act as the body responsible for accreditation. Sites which meet the criteria will normally be accredited on an annual basis, but shorter accreditation periods may be adopted in particular cases to encourage site development and improvement.
