With the rapid changes happening around the world, driven mainly by the disruptive Covid-19 pandemic, we would like to organize a webinar to discuss what the disruption means to our public transport system and how we can boost its resilience. The discussion will mainly focus on the MENA region.
Main topics to discuss will include:
- What are the changes in travel behaviors due to a disruptive event such as Covid-19 pandemic?
- How can we ensure efficiencies in operations and increasing accuracy in decision making during disruptive events?
- Who are the role-players in building more resilient public transport system?
The overall objective of the event is to stress the importance of collaborative work among the three main role-players, i.e., authorities, operators and academics in advancing public transport system in general and building its resilience in particular.
The event will be organized by International Association of Public Transport (UITP) and hosted by Qatar Transportation and Traffic Safety Center (QTTSC), Qatar University.
his 90 minutes webinar in English is free of charge. Participants will be able to access the recording of the webinar afterwards in MyLibrary.
