Mobility: Ridership Week

Ridership Week is a week-long series of events featuring live broadcasts, exclusive interviews, interactive briefings, webinars and workshops.


The transportation industry is in flux. Disrupted by COVID-19, technology, and the energy transition, it is going to change more in the next 5 years than ever before.

Traditional transit is now faced with protecting existing revenue streams and enabling equitable access of people and goods whilst preparing for seismic change. Failure to evolve will prove fatal, and timing is everything.

Ridership Week connects the leading national, state and city officials with the C-Suite in transit and mobility from largest technology, infrastructure, OEM and mobility companies on the planet.

Join us to identify the business models, revenue strategies, infrastructural requirements and public/private partnerships that reduce emissions, finance and enable the safe and equitable movement of people, goods and services.

30TH MARCH: INTERACTIVE BRIEFING:

Ridership Redefined: Infrastructure, Investment and Collaboration

Cities and public transport agencies across the world have had their ridership figures decimated by new working habits, safety procedures, and lockdown measures in response to Covid-19. This has created gaps in service delivery and huge loss of revenue forcing cities and transit authorities to restructure and redesign infrastructure, funding, and service strategy.

In this hour long, interactive webinar we discuss:

  • Transition plans for new levels of public transportation as ridership curves evolve.
  • Balancing capacity, demand, and pricing to determine fiscal policy and future revenue forecasts.
  • Making up the shortfall: funding, investment, and partnership strategies to mitigate ridership deficits.
  • The role of transportation hubs, curb-side management, and auxiliary mobility services as public-private revenue instruments.

31ST MARCH: INTERACTIVE BRIEFING:

Integrating Public Transport into Mobility as a Service: Regulation, Data, and Scalability

Evolving ridership behaviours demand greater interoperability between public and private mobility providers. In this briefing we explore the governance framework and long-term financial planning for the integration of ticketing and payment systems, alongside implications for the collection, management and use of data.

  • Integrating mobility services and platforms across public transit to respond to evolving demands to create flexible, open access, and shared service solutions.
  • How to scale regional open access platforms into state and nation-wide programs.
  • The role of connected data in forecasting travel demands and equitable service requirements.
  • Identifying mobility solutions that compliment public transport provision and provide flexibility to new working, living and travel behaviours.
