Transportation system owners, operators, and suppliers worldwide are striving to keep up with the demands of an expanding global economy, urbanisation, an increasingly digital consumer, and an ever more mobile population.

Clients in both the private and public sectors are looking for new strategies and technologies that will help them better serve customers through improvements in safety, travel quality, capacity, and security.

New technologies and exacting customer expectations are raising the bar for operators, who also need to look at how to address commercial and organisational issues such as fare structures, recruitment, branding, and communication.
