Reshaping the way we move is now more important than ever. Public transport is the backbone of urban mobility. We need to build on the momentum of change and innovation – not only to recover from the pandemic, but to take big steps towards more accessible and sustainable mobility in cities.

HERE invited speakers from Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) and VMZ to discuss current challenges from a public transport operator’s and city planner’s perspective, and how location technology can play a vital role in shaping future-proof transport services.

This webinar addressed:

  • How public transport operators and cities can be at the forefront in shaping new transport services
  • How location data and location technology enables more contextual mobility experiences and delivers insights for better city planning
  • How SBB delivers truly connected and personalised mobility throughout Switzerland with its new SmartWay platform and why a new approach to (intermodal) routing is needed
  • How VMZ tackles road infrastructure challenges in a number of cities and brings mobility providers together, breaking down the silos of various mobility operators
  • Listen to our expert speakers unique public transport and city knowledge
