With the voices of the sector

Technology is constantly accelerating and the digital revolution taking place in public transport has continued to develop since the last edition of IT-TRANS was held.

As the largest event of its kind dedicated to I.T. and digitalisation in urban mobility, IT-TRANS brought together the biggest and brightest names in the sector for its first physical edition in four years.

Jointly organised and hosted by UITP and Messe Karlsruhe, the eighth edition of the leading Conference and Exhibition saw record numbers of delegates discuss the next steps in innovation and digitalisation (10-12 May 2022).

For this year’s edition our key topics and themes focused on Mobility as a Service, Contactless Ticketing, Cyber Security and Data Governance, 5G and Telecommunication, Digital Transformation, Artificial Intelligence and Internet of Things, Autonomous Mobility, On-demand and Flexible Transport, Big Data and Artificial Intelligence and Smart Cities.

Held under these 10 key themes and topics, the 2022 edition broke records as the most successful edition in years, with extra special moments brightening the programme.

The challenges urban mobility faces are best met by collaboration and innovation, making IT-TRANS the perfect opportunity to consider what the future of our sector should look like. The record number of participants shows the desire to focus on the intelligent mobility and digital revolution taking place in public transport. It was my pleasure to lead the UITP delegation for the eighth edition of IT-TRANS.

From a record-breaking edition

Holding the honour of the official patronage of the German Federal Ministry for Digital Transport and the European Commission, IT-TRANS showed its relevance as the beating heart of the digital trends shaping public transport, with Federal Minister Volker Wissing addressing the opening ceremony.

UITP President Khalid ALHOGAIL led the UITP delegation opening the 2022 edition, before officially launching the exhibition alongside Secretary General Mohamed Mezghani* and Lord Mayor of Karslruhe Dr. Frank Mentrup. The President also welcomed our latest members in the special membership ceremony, before hosting both the UITP Executive and Policy Boards during IT-TRANS.

Our Opening Ceremony was given a look into the future with an impressive keynote speech delivering by futurist, author, humanist and filmmaker Gerd Leonhard. Discussing his viewpoint on humanity and technology, Gerd presented the role of public transport in his vision for the ‘The Good Future’.

Head of Metro Kyiv Viktor Braginsky received a standing ovation after delivering his special address, where he informed the audience of the resilience of those working within public transport in Ukraine, dedicated to keeping cities and people moving. Secretary General Mohamed Mezghani presented the Ukrainian delegation with UITP membership, acknowledging the key role the metro infrastructure has played in keeping people safe. Stay tuned for more from Kyiv soon! 

With record-breaking numbers and a sector-leading Conference programme and Exhibition, IT-TRANS 2022 was an edition to remember. The present and the future must be driven by technology…see you in 2024!
