Session Overview
STR1.2: Towards a Truly Integrated Transport System
Monday, 16/Apr/2018:
3:00pm - 4:30pm

Location: Lehar 1+2

Session Abstract

A truly integrated transport system needs to be established to respond to the major challenges of decarbonisation, pollution and congestion, while addressing societal needs and the demands of the industry. A successful integration requires not only a smooth operation of the different transport modes individually, but also a shared vision of a customer-centric transport system as a whole, including new or changed business models, innovative IT tools, smart and coordinated interoperability as well as proper integration of services to be provided to users (people and industry). Therefore, a wide variety of stakeholders, transport industry and users need to be involved to contribute pieces to a system of systems that can be used and operated in a seamless, efficient and sustainable way. In this session attendees will: address urban and long distance transport system integration, hear from different stakeholders and discuss options with panellists and policy makers.
