The ATRA Industry Group, of which 2getthere is a founding member, will participate in the ASCE Urban Transportation Systems Conference in Paris from November 17 to 20.
This Conference will offer a forum for civil engineers seeking to address civil engineering applications associated with all modes of public transportation, including bus and rail. The civil engineering profession, through its many sub-disciplines, provides a vast array of specialized knowledge toward the science of safe and efficient movement of people and goods. Civil engineers throughout the world take on many important roles in support of the public transportation industry.
The conference will have four parallel tracks covering the following topics:
- Planning, environment, and finance: planning tools, environmental and sustainability issues, and innovative financing mechanisms for planning, operations, and construction
- Operations & maintenance of systems infrastructure: security, safety, and efficiency
- Design and construction of infrastructure: bus (bus rapid transit, exclusive bus lanes, etc.) and rail systems (underground, elevated, and surface alignments), stations, etc.
- Innovative systems and practices: leading edge vehicle, infrastructure, and propulsion systems
A seperate session on PRT and PRT systems is organized where the ATRA Industry Group will present on the state of the industry and the systems realized.
