UTIP 60th World Congress
Date: 26 – 30 May 2013
Location: Geneva, Switzerland
The 60th World Congress and Mobility & City Transport Exhibition of the International Association of Public Transport (UITP) will be hosted by transports publics genevois (tpg). As expressed in the slogan ‘i-MOVE 2.0, THE business model for tomorrow?’, the event will constitute a major step forward in efforts to bring about the radical overhaul of the sector that is necessary in order to double the public transport market share worldwide by 2025.
Without a radical change towards less car dependency, cities will no longer be able to live, breathe and grow and territories will lose out on competitiveness and wealth creation. If people are really to be convinced to move around sustainably, they have to be offered a wide range of comfortable and easily available mobility options that fit with their own lifestyle values.
Alongside improving service quality and increasing capacity for public transport, this requires a comprehensive review of the service portfolio and retail facilities. The generalised use of web-based applications, including for payments and travel information, will facilitate the use of buses, trains, bikes, taxis and car-sharing – which explains the slogan i-MOVE 2.0.
Such a radical move will generate a healthier turnover and optimise the yield per customer. For urban mobility to be a lasting business, it needs to be more self-sustaining and reduce its dependency on public resources, while continuing to be affordable. This revolution must also be carefully organised.
The Congress programme will feature six main topical clusters:
- Service design and portfolio
- Strategic management and integrated business processes
- Funding model
- Governance and industry structures
- Smart city and mobility management
- The tools of Mobility 2.0
