The countdown until 9 June 2019 is on—the next Global Public Transport Summit in Stockholm, Sweden is fast approaching.

As our final Congress programme begins to take shape, you might be wondering, “What’s in it for me?” Let us give you a sneak peek.

Under the theme ‘the Art of Public Transport’, celebrating mobility artists from all facets of our sector, we have defined several key topics that will structure our sessions, presentations and discussions.

The programme is filled with sessions under the topic of operational excellence. This topic addresses the ever-growing demand for large fleets of electric buses and how to properly prepare the industry to move towards zero emission vehicles.

There are many new technologies emerging which completely change the way we expect public transport systems to operate, such as artificial intelligence (AI). AI technology opens the door for predictive maintenance and many other services to improve operational performance. At the Summit, we will have a session to discuss best practices and how to implement this new technology.

When taking about the latest technological innovations, you can’t have a Congress that doesn’t have specific sessions dedicated to Autonomous Vehicles (AVs). As leaders in the AV revolution, public transport stakeholders must keep discussing how to introduce this growing new technology in the form as shared fleets, rather than privately owned vehicles.

New mobility services in general, and especially Mobility as a Service (MaaS) solutions, will be discussed throughout the Congress, alongside presentations sharing best practices from all over the world.

We also have sessions under the topic of harvesting innovation, meant to inspire our sector, especially as we move more and more towards digital solutions. Under this topic, we will discuss the importance of shifting to become a data-driven sector.

Finally, we must strive to attract new talents and skills and seek to achieve a diversity in our workforce for optimal performance and to better meet the many challenges we face in this sector.

Now that you know what to expect, perhaps you want to know who to expect? Check out some of our speakers that have already confirmed their participation.

We have speakers such as Edwins Mukabanah, Managing Director, Kenya Bus Service Group; Jean-Pierre Farandou, Executive Chairman, Keolis Group; and Sabrina Soussan, Chief Executive Office, Mobility Division, Siemens.
