Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITSs) have been instrumental in reshaping transportation towards safer roads, seamless logistics, and digital business-oriented services under the umbrella of smart city platforms. Undoubtedly, ITS applications will demand stable routing protocols that not only focus on Inter-Vehicle Communications but also on providing a fast, reliable and secure interface to the infrastructure. In this paper, we propose a novel stable infrastructure-based routing protocol for urban VANETs. It enables vehicles proactively to maintain fresh routes towards Road-Side Units
(RSUs) while reactively discovering routes to nearby vehicles. It
builds routes from highly stable connected intersections using a selection
policy which uses a new intersection stability metric. Simulation
experiments performed with accurate mobility and propagation
models have confirmed the efficiency of the new protocol and its
adaptability to continuously changing network status in the urban
