Preparing for the future of transport, Perth

About this event

Please note that this event will be held 17.30-20.00 AWST on 25 February 2021.

New developments in shared, autonomous, connected and electric transport services will affect our lives and things are set to change significantly in the very near future.

Autonomous vehicles will affect the way our towns and cities look, how and where we live and the future shape of mass transit. Done right, they can integrate with mass transit to provide a highly efficient and seamless multi-modal transport system for road and rail.

With thoughtful public sector leadership, we can use the opportunity of connected and autonomous vehicles to transform our places and streets, while generating enormous safety and efficiency benefits. With developer and investor input, we can seek to create new communities that are designed with people at the top of the transport hierarchy rather than cars. There is every chance that we’ll need fewer miles of tarmac as an autonomous fleet will utilise road space much more efficiently.

This event is organised and hosted by ICE Western Australia Local Association.
