Smarter Travel Forum

Campaign for Better Transport has come together with Cubic Transportation Systems, Telefónica and Thales to form a Smarter Travel Forum. The Forum is calling on Government to embed smart travel such as real time information, smartcards and data collection into its transport strategies.

"Investing in new transport infrastructure is important, but investment should be directed to making transport smarter and more intelligent, not just building more of it" Stephen Joseph, Campaign for Better Transport

In December 2013, the Smarter Travel Forum launched a Smarter Travel Manifesto, setting out the benefits of smart technology for passengers, policy-makers and operators, and suggesting ways the Government can encourage smarter travel through better regulation, contracts and investment.

You can view slides from the presentations given at the Smarter Travel Manifesto launch in December 2013 below:

"We are calling on the Government to consider the huge benefits of upgrading our transport infrastructure with smart technology, so the UK can be fit for the digital future" Billy D'Arcy, Telefónica UK.

We are currently working with forum members to outline the plan of work for 2014.
