Transport for the West Midlands (TfWM)
In order to improve access to transport - as well as to tackle social isolation and improve mental health - National Express has expanded its Ring and Ride door-to-door minibus service in the West Midlands.
In this issue of Intelligent Transport, we feature exclusive content from leading industry experts discussing: why integrated transport is essential to post-COVID-19 recovery; how the industry is ensuring that public transport is accessible to all; the role of micro-mobility in MaaS; and much more.
The 5G connected network of roads will provide quicker and more accurate data to traffic control centres than what the current system of data collection offers.
The scheme will encourage drivers of older cars to stop using their vehicles in exchange for mobility credits which could be used on car club services for example.
A share of £2.4 million has been awarded to seven consortiums to launch 5G-enabled road and rail transport trials across the West Midlands.
The trial will launch to the public in Birmingham and Coventry on 10 September and up to 10,000 e-scooters are to be rolled-out across the region soon after.
