New mobility services: managing change and disruption

Current technological developments have led to new mobility services. These services are contributing to the restructuring of urban mobility systems, just as motorised transport has done in the past. Technology has helped raise the public interest for shared goods and services. The notion of sharing journeys on an on-demand basis is now widespread practice. Such novel practices are fundamentally transforming cities and the way people move around, a trend that could accelerate if combined with the development of automated vehicles (AVs) and artificial intelligence (AI).



Due to situation with COVID-19, the Metro Assembly this Spring could not be held in Moscow as planned. However UITP is organising an online Metro Assembly consisting of four 90 minute sessions on four different days. In addition to the normal working programme of the Assembly, there will be two sessions dedicated to how metros have been affected by the pandemic and how they can adapt to the new normal (more information in the ‘Programme’ section).


Digitalisation in Public Transport

Digital technologies have the potential to deliver a revolutionary impact on the public transport sector. This paper explores the meaning of “digitalisation” with the aim to allow UITP members to better understand what it is in the context of public transport, what opportunities it provides as well as the challenges it brings.

Artificial Intelligence in Mass Public Transport 

The UITP Asia-Pacific Centre for Transport Excellence, in collaboration with the Land Transport Authority (LTA) of Singapore, has conducted a study about Artificial Intelligence in Mass Public Transport.

The objective of the project was to demystify AI, raise awareness in the public transport sector by landscape analysis and provide insights to organisations who may be considering AI-powered solutions. The resulting report outlines current use-cases of AI applications in public transport and what the future might hold for AI in public transport systems.


Moving forward with artificial intelligence in public transport

It is undeniable that artificial intelligence (AI) is growing its importance in every sector, including public transport. The use of AI applications in public transport could be one of the critical solutions that efficiently unlocks the value of data to improve the quality and efficiency of the public transport sector. This Action Point paper is based on the findings from UITP Asia-Pacific Centre for Transport Excellence’s study on Artificial Intelligence in Mass Public Transport, co-funded by Land Transport Authority of Singapore.
