The future of rural mobility

Webinar: 09.30 - 11.00

27 Oct 2021


** Last chance to book **

The summer of 2021 has been awash with reports about transport decarbonisation, and most have highlighted the scale of the challenge for rural areas in particular. More than half the country’s population lives in small towns, rural areas, or suburban fringes. The economics of transport in rural areas is very different from urban settings, and most accept that a one-size-fits-all approach to decarbonising transport will not achieve the desired outcomes. The webinar will explore:

  • Is the Government’s Road to Zero industrial strategy / transport decarbonisation plan urban-centric?

  • Electrification outside of urban areas

  • What are the possible outcomes for the rural community when it comes to public transport decarbonisation options?

  • MaaS, mobility hubs, shared transport and on demand / DRT services

  • Funding and business models for rural public transport

  • Supporting active travel
