Local Public Transport and Innovation in Barcelona
Local Public Transport at this years ETC. The Local Public Transport committee’s programme is concerned with both urban and rural transport.
This year’s programme features sessions on:
Governance – how do we organise the provision of local public transport?
Networks – where do routes and services need to go, how often, and how do we judge what represents good value for money?
Fares, Ticketing and Customers – are we offering the right sort of ticketing product? And does any subsidy that is involved accurately target the needs of the customers?
The LPT programme always includes technical visits to the local operations – there is always much to be learned from others’ experiences. This year we will be visiting some of Barcelona’s well-organised local interchanges, and their Metro lines 9 and 10. These visits will be particularly well-informed by a session on ‘Innovation in Barcelona’.
