Now in its 17th year, The Transport Practitioners’ Meeting (TPM) is the annual meeting place for all transport planners, placemakers, highway engineers and urban transport designers. The call for papers is open, as well as registration, for this 10-11 July 2019 event in Oxford.
TfL has published research that shows improvements to make it easier and safer to walk and cycle in London's town centres and high streets lead to an increase in retail rental values, more retail space being filled and a 93% increase in people walking in the streets.
In response to high demand, Act TravelWise is co-ordinating TravelWise Week 2018. The week-long campaign will be held at the same time as, and in co-operation with, European Mobility Week (EMW) - 16-22 September 2018. This year's theme is 'Mix and Move!', focusing on multi-modality - the mixing of transport modes within the same journey or for different trips. You are invited to get involved - whether you represent a local authority, transport operator, business, university, health care provider or even just as an individual. It's an opportunity to engage with the public and other partners broadly on the theme of transport and travel in a number of ways.
Act TravelWise is holding its Annual Conference & AGM on Thursday 31 January 2019 in Birmingham, with the theme 'Innovation and Change in Mobility Management: What's New and What's Next?' The call for papers has been issued, with a submission deadline of Friday 28 September 2018. The announcement also includes a call for sponsors and exhibitors.
