OVERVIEW View Conference Agenda

This conference will bring together representatives from across all of Scotland’s passenger transport industries to discuss the challenges and opportunities ahead as their services and passenger expectations are transformed by digital opportunity.

Scotland’s geography means that its economies and communities are served by the full range of passenger transport modes. Within and between communities, rail, bus, ferry, air, tram and urban rail services provide the lifeblood of daily commuter travel and enable urban, rural and remote Scotland to sustain jobs, businesses, public services and strong communities. Strengthening, protecting and growing these services is both an economic and a transport opportunity.

How then can we enhance passenger transport services, grow profitability and passenger numbers, lower carbon footprint and continue to improve and transform the passenger experience?

The day aims to provide a platform to discuss a range of themes including:

• Digital horizon and opportunity
• Safety
• Interoperability
• Smart ticketing
• Reliability
• Supporting growth and Scotland’s economies
• Concessionary travel
• Low carbon and sustainability
• Door to door transport

Very often it's the creative thinking that takes place across organisations and between sectors that leads to the best results. One Public Sector Expo brings people together to share their insights on how this spirit of collaboration is transforming Scotland's public services, and has on display some inspirational examples of practical action that is improving people's lives.
