On Thursday 7th October we hosted TRANSPORT Smart Class, London & South East England 2021 face-to-face at The Embassy, Belgravia. This event gave a fresh take on deploying the latest digital technology-enabled solutions, data-driven strategies and best practices to tackle transport and mobility challenges facing London and its hinterland, burgeoning smart city-regions of the South East and East Anglia, and beyond, to deliver a transport system that allows passengers and citizens to travel efficiently, safely and with minimal impact on the environment.
