Local Authorities and network operators are under pressure to implement new technologies to satisfy the increasing demand for innovative and customer-friendly transport services. This is being delivered against a backdrop of reductions in budgets and resources.

Join the IET and ITS UK for a day that explores how current and emerging transport technology can help overcome the challenges in the implementation of cost-effective ITS solutions in local transport.

New to RTIC-interactive! is a revamped event format, showcasing real-world case studies, panel discussions and round-table workshops and technology start-up ‘elevator pitches’. Facilitated networking will allow for an in-depth and impartial discussion.
