At IT-TRANS, our side-events will dive deeper into all things IT and digitalisation 

As we are rapidly approaching IT-TRANS, you probably have had various glances at our Conference programme… From 10 to 12 May, our plenary sessions, workshops, and latest markets updates adorn the conference agenda, with international speakers discussing what’s next for IT in public transport.

But did you know that your invitation goes beyond the conference sessions?

On and beyond the UITP stand, various side-events will dive deeper into all things IT and digitalisation for public transport. From how to successfully implement MaaS to advancing safety in bus networks, a wide array of (EU) projects will take to the stage to share knowledge, answer questions, and deepen your understanding of research and innovation in urban mobility.

These smaller sessions provide plenty of opportunity to network, engage in discussion with the speakers, or just have a good coffee while enjoying cutting-edge insights.

Don’t forget to add the below side-events to your diary!

Learn how to successfully implement MaaS at the RIDE2RAIL & IP4MaaS Joint Stakeholders’ Workshop 

Towards successful implementation of MaaS: Joint RIDE2RAIL/IP4MaaS Stakeholders’ Workshop, 12 May, 14.15 -17.05

Often dubbed as key tool to steer travel behaviours towards more sustainable modes, Mobility as a Service, or simply MaaS, is here to stay.

At this Joint Stakeholders Workshop, the EU-projects RIDE2RAIl and IP4MaaS will present progress and (preliminary) results, highlighting how their MaaS solutions are planned to be tested in real-life demos. International speakers, including UITP, Europe’s Rail JU and Azienda Trasporti Milanesi (ATM), will demonstrate the advancements ongoing in the field and give an overview on the future of integrated mobility with a user-centric approach. You can check the full list of speakers here.

Venue: Konzerthaus, Kleiner Saal – Kongresszentrum Karlsruhe (30 minutes by public transport from main Conference). You need to register separately for this event. Please register here.

The SAFE BUS project wants to advance safety and security in bus networks

SAFE BUS: advancing bus safety with technology 10 May, 14.00 – 15.00, UITP Stand

Launched early 2022, the SAFE BUS project brings around the table special security services and the public transport sector to advance safety in bus networks. SAFE BUS will introduce new training initiatives for both managers and bus drivers, making sure that all transport providers have access to knowledge about transport safety and emergency procedure

At this side-event on the UITP stand, project partner and Chief Security Officer at Arriva Netherlands, Jan Politiek, and UITP Security Expert Andrea Soehnchen will give an overview of SAFE BUS and discuss how technology can help to improve security of bus operations.

Discuss all things data with DATA4PT

Learn how the DATA4PT project advances public transport by supporting the implementation of data standards, 11 May, 11.30 – 12.30. UITP stand

Are you curious to learn more about how advanced data-sharing practices can help build a more sustainable transport network? On Wednesday, join the DATA4PT project at the UITP stand and discover how the project wants to enhance how data in Europe is treated and shared.

The main objectives of DATA4PT consist of technical and organisational activities to facilitate the development and deployment of the European public transport data standards Transmodel, NeTEx and SIRI.

Take this opportunity to discover all things data with the DATA4PT consortium!

Explore how TRIPS promotes inclusive public transport

Creation of digital tools to promote inclusive and accessible transport networks: TRIPS project, 10 May, 13.00 – 14.00, UITP Stand

This side-event aims to explore how the use of co-design approach and the promotion of digital tools to bridge the gap of accessibility of public transport networks.

Within the scope of the TRIPS project, a large-scale survey to passengers with reduced mobility was undertaken to understand their experience and perceived barriers when interacting with our transport systems. A new a co-design approach is proposed to allow people, disabled by inaccessible environments, to take the leading role in designing accessible and useable transport systems. By focusing on the experience and needs of disabled people, the project aims to directly address a wide variety of barriers in current urban transport systems, including those linked to age, gender, health, or language.

Speakers will address those key topics, providing feedback and results on the current status of the practical application of the identified solutions
