It will also highlight how public transport sector is leading the deployment of autonomous mobility services as part of a pursuit of service excellence – another cross cutting theme for the Montreal for the event.
Cyber security poses a growing challenge to the public transport sector and will be examined in Montreal where the final of UITP’s hackathon will also take place. Ongoing themes such as decarbonisation and urban air quality will play remain part of the programme which has up to nine parallel sessions running over three days.
