Keynote panel discussion: Better, faster, more connected and personal: The future of rail in the transport eco-system

Date: 7 November 2019
Time: 10:00

  • Transportation, like other technologies, influences societal change.
  • Vice-versa. Society‚Äôs preferences for transportation are changing. We are busy; always on the go, rushing from a to b. Some of us are based in rural towns, some in the city.
  • We are concerned, more than ever, about the environmental impacts our choices make. We have embraced intuitive technology in mobile devices, immersed in a world where information is constantly at our finger tips.
  • We can source services and goods and pay for them on the move. Delays are not acceptable. We expect industry to keep pace.
  • How will transportation continue to evolve to meet the changing needs and expectations of users into the future? What is the future for rail?
