In the final 2021 issue of Intelligent Transport, we feature exclusive content from leading industry experts discussing: the future of autonomous mobility; how alternative power is supporting the decarbonisation of public transport; why delivering a seamless and enjoyable passenger experience is key to recovering passenger ridership post-pandemic; and much more.
