What’s In Store for 2024

The Future of Transport Summit tackles critical challenges in the transportation sector, focusing on implementing sustainable practices and leveraging innovative technologies for future development. We will explore integrating sustainable practices in transport planning and implementing robust policies that support emissions reduction through optimised land use and urban planning. Redesigning cities with mixed land use can reduce the need for long commutes, cutting down on carbon output.

Active transportation will be a key topic, promoting walking and cycling as viable, everyday modes of transit. Attendees will discuss strategies for fostering behavioural change and encouraging citizens to adopt more sustainable travel behaviours.

We will delve into innovative technologies, including data analytics and AI, to support carpooling and ridesharing, and discuss the electrification of vehicles as a strategic move away from fossil fuels. Enhancing fuel efficiency for existing fleets, implementing alternative fuels, and leveraging advanced data and AI for traffic management will also feature prominently in our discussions.
