Urban Mobility: Think Big Act Smart
How to enhance mobility while reducing congestion, accidents and pollution is a common challenge to all major cities in the world. While the world population is expected to grow to 8.3 billion by 2030, public transport will remain the backbone of multi-modal mobility services in the future
As per UITP’s Grow with Public Transport Strategy, almost 60% of the world’s population will be living in urban areas by 2025. This implies that people will want and need to make more journeys. Urban Mobility: Think Big is the slogan of 2016 MENA Transport Congress & exhibition. This slogan is selected to ensure that we liberate the cities of the future from the environmental, economic and social consequences of traffic congestion.
The congress program will attract governments, city authorities and transport professionals from different part of the world in order to share knowledge and experience. MENA Transport Congress & Exhibition & National Association of Public Transport has joint ventured to stage school transport conference together, thus enhancing the program.The public transport authorities of the region are also keen and investing in school transport operation projects like Roads and Transports Authority (RTA) who has recently established a school transport department and ventured into school transport operation aiming at providing safe and smooth transport for all students of different ages.
Looking forward to meeting you in Dubai in April 2016!
