Why attend?

The Future Transport Forum 2024 will showcase the solutions that are being piloted and refined on the ground in the UK's Future Transport Zones – and beyond.

The way we travel is changing. Technology and innovation are blurring the distinctions between different types of vehicles and services, and increasing automation is providing new opportunities and challenges.

 

Some of these changes, such as apps to help plan journeys, electric vehicles, drones and technology to assist drivers are already here. In the next ten years we are likely to see more and greater change.

Conference delegates

The Future Transport Forum 2024 will showcase the technologies and solutions that are being piloted and refined on the ground in the UK's Future Transport Zones and beyond. It will:

  • Show how £90 million is supporting the trials of new transport innovation in four Future Transport Zones including Solent, TfWM, WECA and Derby / Notts

  • Highlight the benefits of real-world testing of new technologies and approaches

  • Show how innovative places are making smarter and wider use of new technologies

  • Demonstrate innovative new ways to transport people and goods around urban and rural areas

  • Bring together stakeholders including councils, hospitals, transport operators, communities, airports and universities

Future Transport Zones are underpinned by agreed principles:

  • New modes of transport and new mobility services must be safe and secure by design;

  • The benefits of innovation in mobility must be available to all parts of the UK and all segments of society;

  • Walking, cycling and active travel must remain the best options for short urban journeys;

  • Mass transit must remain fundamental to an efficient transport system;

  • New mobility services must lead the transition to zero emissions; 

  • Mobility innovation must help to reduce congestion through more efficient use of limited road space, for example through sharing rides, increasing occupancy or consolidating freight; 

  • The marketplace for mobility must be open to stimulate innovation and give the best deal to consumers; 

  • New mobility services must be designed to operate as part of an integrated transport system combining public, private and multiple modes for transport users;

  • Data from new mobility services must be shared where appropriate to improve choice and the operation of the transport system.
