- June 11: On-demand shared transport: optimising mobility services with new technologies
Transforming transportation through partnershipsThe ubiquity of powerful mobile devices has given rise to new technology platforms that transport agencies can now use to enhance existing service. From the provision of real-time information to microtransit, public transport providers are not only providing alternative options, but also empowering the public to choose the option that makes the most sense in real time-- and easily combine them. To realize the promise of new innovations -- from greater access and choice to reduced congestion and emissions -- it’s critical for private mobility companies and public transport providers to partner in a meaningful way, to both deliver innovation and ensure that the obligations of public transit are met. In this session, Mr. Adelman will discuss Via's vision for the future of transportation, why vehicles must be shared, and how public-private partnerships will evolve in a new mobility world.
