The UITP Mobility Dialogue event will gather leaders, experts, and inspiring speakers in public transport from every corner of the globe, across different time zones over one day.
On 26 October 2021, our newest digital event will consist of 11 Plenary Sessions focused on relaunching the public transport sector, lessons learned from the pandemic and driving transformation in public transport.
We know that the public transport sector faces challenges and opportunities in a world beyond the coronavirus pandemic.
We also know that there’s been many interesting and detailed presentations on building our cities back over the past eighteen months. But have those presentations always been focused around conversations?
We’re still faced with the challenge of reinforcing the resilience of public transport systems to build better urban mobility for the future: a better, stronger and more reliable public transport experience will be crucial to keep meeting and exceeding expectations in our cities.
These past eighteen months have challenged the public transport sector, but we’ve witnessed our community come together to exchange ideas and discuss the future. Public transport is evolving, and so must our conversations. Close collaboration is key to working on that future together, and by doing so with audiences across the globe we can exchange on opportunities for new mobility behaviours and patterns, urban mobility and the cities of tomorrow.
There will be 11 topical Plenary Sessions held from 6am (CET) all the way through to 6.30pm (CET). The topics and programme content includes…
Our first Plenary Session on “Attracting and Retaining Passengers”kicks of proceedings (and the day) at 6am CET. It’s essential for public transport operators and authorities to have a passenger-centric strategies in place to retain trust…what new ways can be found to reconnect with our passengers?
We’ll also be asking questions throughout our programme, so if you want to know “What if…conquering suburban and rural areas is the solution to replacing private cars?” then this Plenary Session is for you. How can public transport, in its various forms, articulate its evolution in urban centres with a better ability to serve population in suburbs and rural areas?
The COVID-19 pandemic has reinforced the need to build resilient transport systems. This means the ability to react, manage and adapt to external events, from pandemics to storms or terrorists attacks…so “Building the resilience of the public transport system – lessons for tomorrow” will discuss how to be better prepared for times of crisis and how best to address climate and health challenges…How do we create a new stakeholders’ ecosystem?
The redefinition of public transport is characterised among other things by a greater diversity of actors…with many different players, interaction is key. “Urban mobility ecosystem, a brave new world…” takes a look at the relationship between all stakeholders and what that means in times of crisis.
With a packed programme, led by impressive speakers, we know that there’s a session tailored for you…with many networking opportunities to engage with throughout the event!
