Driving innovation: Applied technology for light and urban rail

Forward-thinking 21st Century cities are enjoying a transport revolution. More and more are choosing fixed-infrastructure transport solutions to provide a backbone for growth, creating cleaner and less congested environments and increased accessibility to employment, housing and leisure activities for all.

Light rail and tramway systems now provide this service in over 400 cities worldwide. With an average of 20 new lines opening each year, and many more in the planning and development stages, innovative new systems and concepts are enabling us to deliver greater efficiency, increased environmental credentials and an enhanced customer offering – but how are these innovations best applied?

EU Light Rail brings together some of the leading opinion-formers and decision-makers for two days of open debate around the role of technology in the development of sustainable urban travel.

Held at the magnificent Le Musée du Transport Urbain Bruxellois, this two-day congress allows delegates to explore the past, present and future of the mode with fellow professionals from across Europe – and beyond. With an accompanying exhibition from some of the industry’s most innovative suppliers and service providers, this unique event also includes technical visits and over eight hours of networking sessions.

Speakers invited from:
Transport for West Midlands
Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe
Bombardier Transportation
Mott MacDonald
Wiener Linien
Hamburg Hochbahn
Helsinki Transport
and more…
