POLIS has launched a webinar series delving into the future of public transport. Across a series of exclusive events, they look towards the next generation of public transport, from automation to decarbonisation, shared mobility hubs to MaaS, infrastructure to inclusion, while identifying the key challenges and laying the tracks for shared solutions.

The series, called 'Public Transport Lab', explores how we can- and must- capitalise on COVID-19 and recent technological developments to create high-quality, affordable, resilient, and sustainable mobility services for residents in our cities and regions. It will feature experts at the forefront of mobility planning, learning how cities, regions, operators and others are transforming public transport.

This event, which is taking place on 4 November 2021 at 16:00-17:30 CET, focuses on integrating urban design and infrastructure to accommodate public transport. How can urban design foster the integration between active travel and public transport, thus promoting intermodality as a convenient alternative to private car use? Public transport and active travel are key allies to achieve more liveable urban areas, where residents can use both modes in a combined way to reach their destinations in an easy, safe, and convenient way. In this webinar, different perspectives and experiences that follow this approach will be presented, including:

  • The creation of synergies between bike-sharing and train networks at the regional level  
  • The role of Public Transport in achieving more liveable urban areas 
  • The integration of cycling infrastructure and public transport stops
