It's your last chance to join us this Wednesday at Demand Responsive Transport: From Dial-a-Ride to App-Based Startups taking place at Highways England in Guildford, just before the South East regional meeting. Registration for both 15 May events is still open.

Then on 23 May at the free Transitions Towards Connected Places event in Bristol, we've been offered a room to hold a South West regional meeting, so do get in touch if you'd like to come along.

In early June we'll be in Portsmouth for Traffic Removal UK's third free event, Liveable City Centres. Join us there to hear how traffic removal tools can be used to help us to deliver liveable cities.

Also note our Call for Additional Regional Representatives (11 June workshop announcement), which is a great development opportunity for those interested in supporting and strengthening our regional networks.

Among our other news this month, you'll hear about the theme for European Mobility Week 2019 (branded as TravelWise Week in the UK), our annual campaign taking place 16-22 September.

If you have ideas for other events/training or wish to lead one yourself, or if your company would like to sponsor one or more events or e-bulletins, please do get in touch. Thank you for reading!
