Being strategically prepared to achieve the PTx2 vision means being able to imagine the prevailing conditions on the 2025 horizon. Our customers are today’s young people and children: what values will they share? How will they consume and move around? Which energies will be mainstream? Will they be affordable? What will cities look like? Polluted traffic havoc or an oasis of wealth, culture and harmony? How will the concept of quality of life evolve? Catch a glimpse of megatrends and the future with a world class panel.

11:00 - 12:30 Session 2 - Get to know Dubai and RTA

To meet the challenges of economic and population expansion, Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority has developed a comprehensive strategic plan for 2020: ‘Safe and smooth transport for all’. Originally conceived as a “car city”, Dubai quickly recognised the critical need for more sustainable mobility and is now developing a backbone of public transport for its mobility system. Modal shift targets for public transport aim to take it from 6% in 2005 to 30% in 2020. To achieve this, more than US$10 billion have been earmarked for public transport development.

Does the UITP PTx2 strategy seem like a fool’s paradise to you? Extreme, unrealistic or unachievable? Not to everyone! Since it was launched in spring 2009 our ranks have been steadily swelling across the globe and a number of your peer organisations are well on their way to implementing ambitious growth plans. The current economic climate is full of contrasts and it is difficult to predict how and the pace at which it will evolve. But whether you are facing painful downturn or robust growth, PTx2 is an answer to many of your challenges. This session will give a few examples of advanced projects at city or national level to help spread the virus and stimulate others to embark on the PTx2 challenges.- 12:30 Session 3 - Boosting Public Transport, action!

Cities that chose to encourage public transport for the mobility of their citizens demonstrate its powerful impact on economic activity, employment and economic productivity. In a period of major economic turbulence, it is high time to communicate and publicise the decisive role of public transport on economic recovery and growth. Where investment in public transport was included in recovery plans, the positive effect of our industry on the local economy has been significant.

Priority #1: safe and secure The key to public transport security is introducing a balance of measures that will give customers a positive impression of being looked after without feeling over-policed. Besides threats which are created intentionally, the customer wants to be protected against harm, which happens accidentally. This session will look at a selection of soft and hard examples of measures to achieve this objective.

MENA Workshop From oil-rich and car based to a reference in public transport and sustainable cities.

 

The MENA is traditionally seen as an oil-rich and car based region. However the majority of governments have opted for huge investments in long distance rail systems, but especially for integrated urban public transport systems. The leaders in the region have identified public transport as a key to the fast development of their cities and countries. Dubai is the best showcase for demonstrating that with a determined choice for public transport, it is possible to make a dramatic positive change for a city. Such positioning today is held by this region as an example for the rest of the world, that… “yes we can” … make a difference.

The session will provide an update of where the tremendously ambitious public transport development of Abu Dhabi stands, but also others like Doha, Riyadh, Marrakech, Tunis, Kuwait, Amman, Damascus and many others will present how they will continue to double the public transport market share of an already dramatically increased ratio during the last few years.

During the session, the best in class examples will be awarded with the UITP Regional PTx2 awards. To be continued on Thursday 14 April 2011

Supplying cities worldwide with efficient public transport is the first step in dealing with increasing mobility needs and fighting congestion. But so much more can be achieved if demand management measures to encourage sustainable travel choices are introduced. This session will explain why soft policy measures, methods of curbing the demand through urban planning, partnerships with the business community and traffic management really influence citizens’ travel behaviour and how they are cost-effective.

Novel techniques for engineering and refurbishing Light Rail Vehicles In many cities and agglomerations, Light Rail Vehicles (LRV) are the most popular means of transportation and the last three decades have seen a renaissance of LRV networks which have exceeded all expectations. The attractiveness of this mode of public transport is due to many different features: scenic routes through the cities, strong local touch and feel of the vehicles, easy accessibility, smooth, quiet and reasonable fast transportation, no emissions, spacious and light-flooded interiors, air-conditioning etc. This session will present various technology-related success factors of modern LRV.

Latin America Workshop How to sustain the growth of the public transport offer to the Latin American Citizen?

Most Latin American countries have only been affected by the global financial crisis in a very limited way. In the next 5 years, different cities plan to implement more than 600 km of metros and commuter trains in 20 cities in 9 countries in the region. Also the BRT revolution has not been stopped yet and over 70 cities in the region are investing in one or more BRT corridors.

An active round table with 7 top executives and key decision makers from Mexico, Brazil, Colombia, Argentina and Chile will debate whether the innovative financing mechanisms that are being used, like PPP’s, private concession operation, etc. will be sufficient to make the planned growth of public transport happen. Videos showing some of the key challenges Latin American societies are faced with will challenge the panelists to detail their views on solutions for making sure the growing Latin American middle class can make the right modal choice.

The winners for the Latin American PTx2 awards will also be announced and honored during this session.

Open and accessible public transport networks unfortunately also attract criminal activity, from vandalism to terrorism. Whilst there is no one-size-fits-all solution to prevent crime, there are many measures that can make a difference and help passengers feel safe and secure, which are vital steps in ensuring public transport is the mode of choice. This session will explore how to consider security as a solution, rather than as a problem, and how to make security a cornerstone of company values.

Hybrids: Mix-it your way! The reduction of fuel consumption and thus hazardous emissions is one of the most prominent topics in public transport. Motor vehicle exhaust is considered to be the most predominant source of urban air pollution.

Turkey Workshop

Blossoming public transport in the country of the four seas

Turkey is one of the fastest growing economies in the world. The steady economic growth of 7% during 6 subsequent years and a quick recovery after the 2009 economic crisis also translates into important public transport developments.The country has taken up a commitment to double the urban rail infrastructure by 2023. The recent implementation of a BRT in Istanbul, which was delivered in record time, is a trendsetter for the rest of the country. Aside from BRT’s, several light rail systems are also being built and have started operating recently. Turkish public transport professionals and decision makers will explain how these massive investments in public transport fit in the long term development plan of the country. The session will be the occasion to award some of the many champions of the PTx2 Strategy of UITP from this country.

The objective of the session is to understand the evolving governance and the variety of business models and identify the power shifts in the industry. Who’s the boss in the supply chain? There cannot be a simple answer. As a trend, decisions move from central to local level. The Mayor’s role is to gain a new quality, but operators have also expertise and ideas to bring to the mobility discussions. In many places, a healthy business model remains to be found. We cannot continue in this way if gaining additional customers leads to increased deficits. The sector needs champions, bright ideas and courage. The panel of this session will feature some of these champions with following profiles: Lord Mayors, CEO of organising authorities and CEO of operating companies

Africa Workshop

The Emerging market of the public transport sector in Africa

Since the formerly known emerging countries, like the BRIC’s have proven, due to their excellent record during the crisis, to be established economies, investors are paying more and more attention to Africa. To allow the African economies to grow, mobility problems will have to be tackled in the bigger cities. Probably the fastest urbanization process in the world is to be found in Africa, meaning the challenge is still growing. Organising the transport services more efficiently is by far more cost effective and it should come to no surprise that after the tremendous success of the Lagos and Johannesburg BRT’s, other mayor investments in public transport are planned and even under implementation.

The challenge is tremendous though and almost requires starting from scratch a total reform of the existing transport supply chain. Authorities are being established, even multinational African groups of operators are emerging and a local supplying industry is growing quickly, already delivering the UITP strategy of doubling public transport market share. The session allows these pioneers to take the floor and explain what more is still to come in our sector in Africa. The session will also be the occasion to award these leaders with the Regional PTx2 awards.

To be (customer-oriented) or not to be: that is the question Putting the customer experience at

Putting the customer experience at the heart of public transport service is not new. However, as customer expectation rises, so does the challenge. Focusing on an inclusive and caring service culture, embracing potentially competitive mobility solutions, making information the core element of a meaningful passenger trip, and pampering your staff to get happy customers, have proven to be successful solutions. It is all about creating a powerful customer experience and going beyond the customers’ expectations.

A happy customer is an informed customer One of the key requirements that must be fulfilled in order to enhance the attractiveness of public urban passenger transport is comprehensive passenger information. A reliable multi service communication network is crucial to achieve this objective. Getting people to their destination in a safe and timely manner also helps to make the journey a more pleasant experience, which improves the image of the public transport system and offers additional advantages in comparison with car travel. This can be achieved by providing wireless or on-line connectivity to travellers’ mobile devices and the distribution of multimedia entertainment and traffic information in real-time – at the stop and inside the vehicle.

Eurasia Workshop From Belgrade to Moscow- The challenges of the changing urban mobility patterns?

Central and Eastern Europe and the countries of the former Soviet Union have a shared economic and historic background. However, after 1990, every country started developing at its own pace. The adoption of free markets has faced the countries to massive institutional and economic challenges that have also affected directly and indirectly the public transport organization and financing. Nevertheless the general trend is a dramatic decrease of the traditionally very high public transport ridership. This session will show how different cities cope with the challenge of the increasing congestion and the increasing costs for urban mobility and their aim to keep the historically high modal share of public transport. The local solutions to avoid the temptation of the private car will be shared, supporting the UITP strategy for doubling public transport also in this part of the world. The session will be closed with the official ceremony for the Regional PTx2 Awards in CEEC and Eurasia.

11:00 - 12:30 Session 17 - Horses for courses: pros and cons of various service provision

Different business models exist alongside each other, from the traditional Western approach of public service requirements linked to financial compensation, to solely commercial provision. According to the chosen economic model, different procedures of procurement, tendering and partnerships are used to award business and service contracts. Feedback appears to show that these procedures are often complex and do not guarantee the best value for money per se.

Asia-Pacific Workshop Speedy supply of public transport development faced with even stronger demand in Asia

The diversity of public transport systems in Asia is as large as it can get in the world: on one hand in Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore, the cities are already highly dependant on public transport as their major mobility choice and yet, as public transport has proven its case, the government and operators are finding ways to further enhance quality of service,

On the other hand there is Korea, Taiwan and Malaysia whose governments and operators are working hard to improve the efficiency and attractiveness of public transport as the major mode of mobility against the debatable domestic car manufacturing industry.

And of course there is also China, in which the government has strongly adopted the policy of “putting priority in developing public transport”. Yet the pace of public transport development and supply could still not meet the growing demand. Mega cities such as Beijing and Shanghai are building 200km long metro systems a year. While this number could mean big, it is far below the total investments in public transport in the remaining 80 Chinese cities with more than 1 million inhabitants.

Wednesday 13 April 2011

Finally, a large part of the Asian population is also living in countries where emerging economies are growing rapidly and urbanisation as well as mobility management are becoming a top priority.

The Asian continent is in full implementation in the field of UITP’s PTx2 strategy, this goes together with a huge boost in innovation. Asia is offering something new every day and during this workshop, those making it happen will personally present their experiences to you and be awarded with the regional PTx2 awards.

Iran Workshop

The Public Transport sector in Iran kicking in second gear

 

Iran has been this last decade a best in class example of a country that doubled the market share of public transport. Huge investments have been made in urban rail infrastructure in Tehran and the other major cities. The results are there with a dramatically improved

transport offer in several cities, a strong local supplying industry that emerged, delivering top-level products at extremely competitive prices, etc.

In

parallel with the continuous opening of new metro lines, Tehran also has a full fledged BRT network which is tremendously successful.

The structuring effect of the public transport infrastructure can already be felt for example through returns from real-estate developments on the metro stations. Other cities in Iran are on the same track, each with its specificities.

A

panel of the different modal operators, government bodies, and not in the least the local and international supplying industry active

in

Iran will identify the factors that allowed for the successful achievements until today, but also what can still be expected in the near

future, what the remaining challenges are and even barriers for the further development of our industry taking up it’s part of UITP’s global

strategy to double Public Transport by 2025. Audio Visual material will support in an interactive way the debate and the winners for the Iranian PTx2 awards will be announced and celebrated.

India Workshop

Moving around efficiently in the most populated country in the world

India is hosting more than 10% of all worldwide cities with more than 1 million inhabitants. Considering the urbanization rate in the country which was 28% in 2001 and is expected to reach 34% by 2021, it is reasonable to expect that the market for public transport should still greatly increase over the coming decade(s). The National Government is aware of the challenges and has introduced many policy guidelines to promote public transport through planning mass transit systems in million plus cities with funding under JNNURM schemes including financing for buses. But still, despite the fact that investments are so grand that demand for buses was higher than supply, thus putting pressure on prices, it remains insufficient. The difficulty to control and coordinate land use and transport planning and the growing middle class are contributing factors to a tremendous increase in personalized vehicles and mobility, resulting in increased congestion, rapid deterioration in the air quality and most importantly a dramatic loss of productivity of the national economy. It is time to allow mass transit systems to start structuring the cities and the country as a whole. The panelists which will include general experts and leaders of the public transport sector will debate about how public transport will contribute to keeping the country from becoming a gridlock and as such, blocking all movements of goods and services and thus the economy and the services to the population. In order to support those who are taking the lead in India to offer better mobility to the Indian citizen and Economy, the session will also be the occasion to present these leaders with the UITP PTx2 Regional Award.

The European Union (EU) is an economic and political union of 27 European countries. It acts in a wide range of policy areas, economic, social, regulatory and financial, covering also the transport sector. Although rarely targeted directly by EU-legislation, the public transport sector is often caught by legal initiatives addressed to other sectors. In addition, urban mobility is increasingly affected by soft forms of legislation like recommendations, guidelines and toolboxes addressed directly to the local authorities. The session sets out to present the complex governance framework, the requirements and challenges for an effective interest representation and methods, strategies, tactics used to influence political decisions.for public transport?

The MENA is traditionally seen as an oil-rich and car based region, however the majority of governments have opted for huge investments in long distance rail systems, but especially for integrated urban public transport systems. The leaders in the region have identified public transport as a key to the fast development of their cities and countries. Dubai is the best show case for demonstrating that with a determined choice for public transport, it is possible to make a dramatic positive change for a city. Such positioning today is held by this region as an example for the rest of the world, that… “yes we can” … make a difference. Follow up of Tuesday 12 April 2011 MENA Workshop.
