CIHT London is delighted to offer this thought-provoking event, held at CIHT, 119 Britannia Walk, London, N1 7JE.
The provision of bus services can unlock a wealth of possibilities when placed in areas that are deprived of mobility options. This could range from individuals being able to get to school, jobs, local amenities, or places of leisure.
At this in-person event, the presenters will take you through the processes of defining and understanding the potential societal benefit objectives that could be unlocked when developing routes for buses and how this is achieved. They will take you through what impacts poor bus route planning can have on society.
Using an example case study, you will have the opportunity to gain valuable insight in understanding the nuance of some of the pains vs. gains in providing the best route options and level of service provision.
This event will also offer the opportunity for Q&A and networking with likeminded professionals in the industry.
This event is aim at those with an interest in transport planning, bus service providers and those involved in the planning of public transport to improve social mobility and unlocking societal benefits. This is open to all at various stages of their career; from students through to experienced professional.
The event will be hosted by Stelios Rodoulis, Rural Mobility & Supporting Network Lead (Integrated Passenger Transport Unit) at Essex County Council. Stelios will be joined by Liani Baglietto Castellares, with further speakers tbc.
