2getthere believes that the knowledge on automated transit is dispersed. This is specifically true with regards to autonomous shuttles where inflated expectations are fed by marketing claims from car manufacturers, tech companies and aggressive start-ups, but also for automated people mover systems. To provide stakeholders, such as cities, developers, consultants and engineers with accurate information requires a pro-active approach in cooperation with other companies through trade assocations. 2getthere is involved in UITP (since 2019), Connekt (since 2017) and ATRA (since 2005).
2getthere joined UITP (Union Internationale des Transports Publics) early 2019. UITP is the International Association of Public Transport and a passionate champion of sustainable urban mobility. Over 1,500 companies, from 96 countries are members, making it a worldwide network of public transport stakeholders and all sustainable transport modes. With UITP taking a leading role in providing information, 2getthere decided to join the network to be able to contribute to the information being disseminated.
