Strategies for recovery: Transit Innovations to foster economic growth and social justice
The International Rail Forum for North America (IRFNA) is an annual seminar aimed to offer the North America region UITP’s worldwide resources for global connectivity and knowledge, bringing together the most current information and developments for our urban transit industry. This year’s virtual event will also feature a robust virtual Exhibit Hall, enabling instant connectivity between industry suppliers and transit operators.
The overall aim is to build on the lessons learned from the ongoing crisis and focus on the paths ahead with creative new thinking, innovations and new models to enhance the continued presence and importance of urban transit for society as well its key role in achieving social justice.
UITP’s global presence, institutional knowledge, network via its members enables this conference to bring together experts with the most current and relevant information. The Forum this year aims to go beyond rail and explore key emerging developments for all modes of urban transit and further, to gain insight how transport entities outside transit are affected and handling the crisis.
The virtual platform will be live for two days. The event will be recorded, and for 30 days it will remain available to watch for those who may have missed the live event.
