As an industry, whether a transport authority, bus operating organization, system and equipment provider, transport consultant, or other stakeholder, together, at our APTMS Discovery Summit 2016, we created a solid foundation as we explored and discovered new perspectives on Intelligent Public Transport strategies, plans, processes, interventions, and implementations.
It became unanimously evident that the life-force that will grow, prosper and sustain the industry resides in sharing knowledge, experiences, ideas, insights, challenges, and learnings.
Fostering innovation to drive cost down and to attract commuters and talent is just as vital and important, whilst strategies to customise and localise solutions are non-negotiable in our unique environment. Synchronised, aligned effort and cost-effective practical integration and efficiency ranked high on the current requirements to ensure ALL stakeholders thrive and do not only survive.
Harness Public Transport and join us at this prestigious event on 22 and 23 June 2017 at the beautiful Midrand Conference Center in Midrand.
