In his opening keynote at TRANSPORT Smart Class, London & South East England 2018, Shane Hymers shared the thoughts of TfL on the modelling for demand led dynamic service planning and got likeminded professionals to think about the opportunities emerging technologies can provide to improve the public transport experience. Whilst most are familiar with the concept of ‘Demand Responsive Buses’, Shane explored what this could mean for buses in London. There are lots of global for profit organisations that see opportunity in this area in London, particularly in the multi-occupancy space between taxi and bus. Will we see Technology and Database experts teaming with traditional transport companies to provide services? If so, what does this mean for Transport Authorities and operations such as London Buses?
