Rhelm attended the inaugural Transport Australia Conference 2019 held in Sydney on 27-28th June. "Shaping Australia's Transport Future" was the theme of the conference this year. Great to have witnessed critical, insightful and challenging conversations and ideas to improve public transport in Australia. Highlights include David Henshers’ presentation on mobility-as-a service (MaaS) thinking to reduce the number of people driving cars or to get more people using public transport and also Peter Newman’s talk on how trackless trams are likely to be a real transformation in public transport in Australian cities. It’s all about finding sustainable ways to improve connectivity within cities and beyond!
