Intelligent Transport’s fifth annual bus dedicated conference, the European Bus Forum, hosted by Transport for Greater Manchester will take place in just three days and will bring together over 300 delegates from across Europe.
Taking place on 29 June 2017 at The University of Manchester, European Bus Forum will bring together key stakeholders from bus operating companies, together with local authorities, passenger transport executives and vehicle manufacturers, to present bus investment and development plans and case studies, as well as share best practice in delivering efficient and cost effective bus services.
With plenty of exhibition stands to visit and talks all day from the top experts in the public transport industry, discussing topics such as changes and developments to bus operations across the UK and Europe, as well as how exciting new transport technologies will impact the bus sector, the European Bus Forum is a great chance to network with industry experts and discuss and debate the important topics that are prevalent within the industry.
