Better policies for intelligent transport!
We are witnessing a fundamental shift in transport thinking. For centuries, transport has focused on methods to get from A to B as efficiently as possible. Now new technologies are empowering citizens to take charge of where they go, when and how. They want to be mobile. And they want that mobility as a service.
ITF Secretary-General Young-Tae Kim presented our latest cutting-edge research at the Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) World Congress, held in Copenhagen, Denmark, from 17-21 September.
At the Congress, Mr Kim delivered an opening keynote on the Mobility as a Service (MaaS) revolution. He highlighted the importance of shared mobility in combating climate change and provided concrete examples of successful "vision zero" road safety results. Inputs from these high-level discussions will feed into the ITF 2019 Summit debate. The Summit, on "Transport Connectivity for Regional Integration", will take place in Leipzig, Germany, from 22-24 May 2019.
