“Faster, more efficient and eco-friendly” – we took part in a panel discussion on urban transport from a technological perspective. Our co-panelists represented the GZM Metropolis, the Warsaw Transport Authority, Trapeze Poland and the “Miasto Jest Nasze” Association.
This year’s gathering was the third edition of the Congress of Urban Technologies (KTM) – an event that shows the latest trends in the development of smart cities through innovation and technology. One of the topics discussed during KTM was also urban transport and a panel discussion, in which we took part: “Faster, more efficiently and eco-friendly”.
During the debate, we discussed how to improve transport in cities in the era of new trends and ways of travelling. In this context, the impact of shared modes of transport and so-called new mobility on the urban transport ecosystems is remarkable. These are much more effective ways of traveling as compared to individual mobility, in particular those based on privately owned passenger cars. Importantly, one of the leading roles in the dissemination of shared mobility (including micromobility) in cities is precisely what technology has to play – especially when it comes to digital integration of collective and shared transport services, as well as effective planning and executing multimodal trips through MaaS-type (Mobility -as-a-Service) platforms.
An article (in Polish) describing the debate can be read on the TransportPubliczny.pl portal: “Urban mobility: the more integration, the more passengers“.
Our supporting member Vianova also presented its solutions for cities in the “city data and innovation” panel. The presentation showcased a data platform for cities to build and manage the future of transportation.
