Discover what we’ll be talking about

A key challenge facing the bus sector is how to transform a bus company from being a traditional labour intensive business into a technology and resource driven enterprise.

To address this, at the International Bus Conference, we will focus on both everyday operational aspects as well as looking at business opportunities beyond traditional bus operations. 

You’ll get the full picture of what is happening in the sector, examples of real-life implementations from across the world.

Everyday Operational Excellence

We’ll be looking at five main areas of the core bus business in everyday bus operations.

  • Comfort and Safety
  • Electrification and New Energy
  • Innovative Technologies
  • Service Contracting and Tendering
  • Happy Customers and Staff

Business Opporunities Beyond Traditional Operations

The ongoing transistion in the public transport sector is  disruptive transformation bringing many new and virtuous business opportunities.  You can expect discussions on:

  • Entering the new energy market
  • Smart bus systems of the future
  • Station development
  • Funding and financing
