ANZAC SPIRIT IN BIC CAIRNS
THE SOCIETAL, environmental and economic challenges for Australia’s regions and cities will be addressed through smart investment in mass and social transit infrastructure and services, says the BIC. No matter where a person lives, public transport in its various new forms will be front and centre in any future land use and integrated transport plans, it states.
The bus industry will be a key player in providing new mass transit styled services, new feeder and connecting services, last-mile and on-demand services. All of this is fast coming to a head, it states. Transport change is with us.
The joint BIC and BCANZ Conference from Oct 7-10 in Cairns is themed “Moving People Century 21” and this is all about leading the discussion with Industry, government and the public to ensure the bus industry is ahead of the game, a leader not a ‘lagger’ in what will be a brave new world of service contracts, service delivery and entrepreneurial opportunities.
