The future of transport in Cambridge
Date: 30 November 2017
Time: 14:45 to 17:30
The event is run by Cambridge Network. Entry is free but please register your attendance here.
Cambridge is growing and will grow more. The city and surrounding areas has to accommodate the increasing needs of local travel. In this event we would like to explore what is technically possible – whether that is ‘last mile delivery’ drones, Mobility As A Service, bikes, autonomous vehicles or even tunnels!
Key speakers will be:
- Are tunnels the future of transport in Cambridge? Prof Lord Robert Mair, University of Cambridge
- Travel in Britain in 2035: Charlene Rohr, RAND Europe
- Connecting people and places, Rachel Stopard, Greater Cambridge Partnership
- Travel to work, Andy Williams, AstraZeneca
- Trialling autonomous pods on the guided busway, Richard Fairchild, RDM
- DelivAir concept for last mile delivery, Nathan Wrench, Cambridge Consultants
Plus lots of exhibitors including: Tesla, PA Consulting, Cambridge Connect, Cambridge Electric Transport, Hubl and more.
The event will focus on:
- the size of our challenge
- some of the evidence collected recently
- potential future scenarios
- ideas being developed here and elsewhere
