Session 1 is by invitation only
In the Assembly, top level Metro Division members share their news and discuss problems at the highest level in a closed, non-commercial environment.
By invitation only
More than 20 months after Covid-19 was declared a pandemic, what is the impact on operations and maintenance expenses (cleaning and disinfection, corrosive effect of new cleaning products, measures for staff, etc.)? What changes has Covid-19 brought to the cost structure of metro operators? Ridership trends and forecasts will also be addressed in this round table.
Speaking about the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on contracting:
Metros are a key tool to make cities more liveable and to develop economies. They also play a significant role in the fight against global warming. With operator and public finances under pressure due to Covid-19, are future investments like network extensions and modernisation programmes being downscaled, are they staying on course or are there more new railway projects to boost economic recovery? Are new business models emerging for metros? – for example, adaptation of the offer to new mobility patterns, revenue diversification, changes to fares structures, etc.
Presenting the results of studies by the UITP Transport Economics Committee and changes to the fare structure in Singapore:
Experience and outlook from operators:
