Organiser Logo



The role of stations in our cities is evolving, and it is important to ensure that they are designed and developed to meet the changing needs of society. With this in mind, the International Association of Public Transport (UITP) partnered with KONE, a global leader in the elevator and escalator industry, to launch the ‘Stations of the Future’ project in 2022. The project aimed to explore the trends, challenges, and solutions that shape the future of stations. The project delivered three main outputs:

  • A Trend Report that analysed the social, economic, and technological drivers and implications of station transformation.
  • A Catalogue of Solutions that showcased potential innovations and best practices for enhancing station functionality, accessibility, and attractiveness.
  • An Executive Summary that synthesised the key findings and recommendations of the project in a concise and compelling document is expected to be published by mid-September (TBC)

The webinar aims will cover the following topics:

  • Trends – how to identify and anticipate the trends that may affect the role and functions of stations in the long term, and what are the current and emerging trends to watch.
  • Station Design – how to create a pleasant and attractive station
  • Urban planning – how to integrate the station with its surroundings
