SafeTrip-21 in the USA and Intelli Green Travel System (IGTS) in Korea are examples of current R&D projects on smart traveler service. The field tests for both projects have been conducted under a national ITS project to develop and evaluate methods for providing users services. SafeTrip-21 and IGTS have initiated to assess how existing information, navigation, and communications technologies in mobile or permanent devices may further improve the convenience, safety and mobility of the users. The personalized and on-demand nature of the traveler services makes them appealing to users and could improve the quality of transportation and travel information service provided. This paper compares results of field tests for two SafeTrip-21 smart traveler services in the USA with the IGTS in Korea in providing connectivity among transportation modes, user mobile devices and infrastructures. It discusses the similarities and differences of the two systems in terms of technology, implementation, and user experiences.
