Public Transport Trends

Published every two years, Public Transport Trends is a publication detailing the most significant developments already having an effect on the mobility market in general and on public transport in particular.

It is the only report that gathers major socio-economic, technological and political developments around the world, and analyses their impact on today’s mobility sector.

Featuring best practices, key statistics and exclusive interviews, the 2019 edition of Public Transport Trends explores several significant developments and trends that are pushing the boundaries of the very definition of our sector. This redefining of public transport has encountered challenges in four significant areas:

  • Customer service excellence 
  • Talents and skills
  • Revisiting governance
  • Cost structure and new revenues
