Putting Cities and People at the Core of our Summit
About the Theme
Public Transport is the ‘Bright Light of the City’. It gives passengers the freedom to discover their surroundings, to commute, to meet friends and family, or simply navigate wherever you need to go with ease. Public transport brings light to any city and energises the lives of all those who use it: it’s simply the brightest decision you can make to move around your city!
With our 2023 theme set, Barcelona is the perfect example of an excellent, modern and well-developed public transport system. Metro, bus, tram, cable car – the city has it all.
By building our Summit Programme we will present two pillars to define the direction: Cities, and People. Because what we know for sure is that public transport is for everyone. It is for the People, for our Cities. Within those two pillars, we will showcase six tracks to drive the direction of our focus.
