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.
