Working alongside decision makers and influencers, including ministers and mayors, is a great way to bring about lasting change in the public transport sector.

When the bus industry gathers for the 2019 UITP International Bus Conference (Brussels, 21-23 October) one of those leading voices will take to the stage as UITP is delighted to announce Gloria Hutt Hesse, Minister of Transport and Telecommunications, Chile as our keynote speaker.

A civil engineer by trade, Ms Hutt Hesse became Chile’s Transport and Telecommunications Minister in March 2018, having previously served as Undersecretary of Transport.

Minister Hutt Hesse will bring her experience, having conducted multiple public transport studies and consultancies in various parts of the world, to our event.

UITP believes that the bus is now firmly in the spotlight – making this the time of the bus…

In July, we launched the 'Story of the Bus' detailing our plans to promote five key UITP bus publications and our ‘100 day countdown’ to our Bus Conference, held in conjunction with Busworld.

Our Bus Transport Unit Leader Arno Kerkhof has described the bus as “having been resurrected” due to the latest energy and technological developments and the advancements of the e-bus around the world.

Now with Ms Hutt Hesse taking to the stage in Brussels next month, the timing is perfect to discuss the electric bus, electromobility and clean transport solutions.
