ON-DEMAND TRANSPORT HOT TOPIC AT HUNTER CONFERENCE
MORE THAN 200 delegates are expected to attend the ‘Navigating the Future’ 2018 BusNSW Conference at the Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley, April 19-20, to engage with industry experts discussing the need for operators, suppliers and government to steer the public transport framework, and to adapt to a changing environment, organisers say.
The conference includes a half-day workshop for BusNSW members on Thursday 19th, as well as a full-day conference on Friday 20th.
Executive director of BusNSW, Matt Threlkeld says: “We live in a rapidly changing world and the way we plan and deliver bus and coach services is being transformed as never before.”
“From mass transit to personalised transport, from fixed-route services to on-demand services, from diesel buses to electric buses, from driver-controlled buses to autonomous vehicles – the transport landscape is rapidly changing. The Conference will give delegates an insight into new public transport initiatives and pilots being used to determine what works and what doesn’t.”
There are limited spaces for the Conference and accommodation. For full programmes and more information visit www.busnsw.com.au, or contact BusNSW on +61 2 8838 9500. Delegates are encouraged to register for the conference before 23 March to take advantage of ‘early bird’ discounts.
