Special Online Edition of the Budapest Smart Ticketing and Digital Services Forum
On the 20th of May 2021 (10h00-13h00 CEST) Calypso Networks Association invites you to a special edition of the Budapest Smart Ticketing and Digital Services Forum! This year, exceptionally, you can attend it not from its traditional location – Budapest – but from anywhere around the globe, as it will take place online.
Over the last decade, digital transformation has represented one of the main challenges for urban services organization, including for public transport. COVID-19 pandemics created a context in which the role of digitization has been analyzed and questioned even more than before. Digital approaches proposed by major institutional and business actors are key solutions to restore the productivity, safety and attractiveness of urban public transport and mobility services, severely affected by the pandemics. In this context, contactless technology will be essential to re-encourage people to use public transport services.
During this year’s special edition of the Smart Ticketing and Digital Services Forum, we will debate about the place of digitization in the revolution of urban transport, especially on the role of digital platforms in offering seamless mobility solutions. The special edition of the Forum with an opening key note by the Hungarian Foreign Ministry will create the right context to discuss related topics during two one-hour panels. The panels will reunite representatives from major institutional actors such as UITP, MaaS Alliance, European Commission (DG Move), Finnish Transport and Communications Agency, Austrian Federal Railways (ÖBB), Carris amongst others.
