PLENARY SESSION 4: Intelligent Transport = Accessible Transport

1330 - 1510

The pace of change is increasing exponentially, and as a result our environment and behaviour are changing just as fast: both as transport providers and customers. Advances in transport technology and planning, such as autonomous vehicles and Mobility as a Service (MaaS) are excellent examples of changes that, within five years will directly impact how our customers move throughout our network to access education, employment, recreation and vital social services. Those within the transport industry need to keep pace with this change to constantly meet the needs of all customers including those with accessibility challenges. How are we going about this?
