In many cities in the MENA region, travel demand is growing at very high rates. On the other hand, the provision of transport networks and modes is constrained by either limited funding or inefficiencies in planning of transport infrastructure. This discrepancy in demand and supply leads to several accessibility and mobility problems, including congestion, safety, environmental issues and increase in energy consumption. These problems can be minimized if accessibility & mobility are targeted to the movement of people rather than vehicles.
Customers are expecting to find in public transport the standard of service and connectivity they can find in all other aspects of their lives, as well as the basic requirements of comfort, security and time efficient. Providing door-to-door mobility solutions is essential to answer the needs of today’s customers. It is essential for public transport players to be able to innovate and facilitate the integration of individual and shared mobility services. They need to be at the forefront of the successful integration of new mobility services such as car sharing, bike-sharing, shared taxi services, carpooling and on demand responsive transport into the mobility service portfolio.
Healthy, competitive and sustainable cities rely on efficient high capacity public transport
The main objectives of this seminar are to:
- Develop understanding of why Integrated mobility is the key solution for sustainable cities
- Empower public transport stakeholders to plan and implement successful and effective integrated mobility solutions.
- Share best practices and lessons learned from the international experiences
