Senior UK policymakers and Government officials will share valuable insight and knowledge to help the public and private sectors collaborate and turn future transport goals into reality at November’s Smart Transport Conference in London.

London’s deputy mayor for transport Seb Dance and newly appointed national active travel commissioner Chris Boardman are among keynote speakers at the event.

Under a ‘working together to achieve net zero’ theme it will help those involved in different areas of transport get together and explore common ground and ways forward. The one-day conference will also provide opportunity for peer-to-peer networking, interaction and knowledge transfer.

Stephen Joseph gives an overview of the key themes covered at the Smart Transport conference…

This event is about exploring the opportunities and practicalities of smart transport – understanding the pressures on national and local governments and ways in which clear policy objectives, backed up by collaboration and partnership between the many different public and private sector organisations, can give communities sustainable transport and access to the services and goods they need.

Key themes discussed in a packed day of presentations will include the Government’s view on the next steps for transport decarbonisation, how local authorities, with help from Active Travel England, can encourage people to ditch the car and instead opt to cycle or walk as we strive towards net zero and how a fully integrated urban transport system created by public and private sector collaboration can attract inward investment.

A series of breakout sessions will be held throughout the day and will feature a panel of speakers who will share their passion and vision for finding innovative solutions to the challenges being faced by the transport sector.

Topics covered will include decarbonising the commute, what the Levelling Up bill means for transport planners, what the Government wants to see in local transport plans, using data to plan transport polices, public opinion research on the prospect of road charging and overcoming public backlash against new transport policies.

Smart Transport chair Stephen Joseph said: "The Smart Transport conference is now established as a place to find out about current policies, practical initiatives and new directions for transport. It attracts speakers from across the private and public sectors, and participants from many different backgrounds and experiences.

“Even though I've been working in transport for a while, I find I always learn something new at Smart Transport conferences and meet new people taking action to decarbonise transport and improve it.”

With the theme ‘working together to achieve net zero’ the event will allow public sector delegates to learn how their peers are striving towards achieving their own goals and aspirations and will inform the private sector of the role they can play in helping the public sector with their long-term projects and visions.
