Topic & Speaker:"The new HITRANS app for Mobility as a Service" by Ranald Robertson, Director of HITRANS

A pioneering Mobility as a Service app has been launched by the Highlands and Islands Transport Partnership (HITRANS) to increase accessibility of integrated travel for residents and visitors in rural Scotland. The GO-HI app, developed in partnership with leading MaaS technology firm Mobilleo, allows users to plan, book and pay for an end-to-end, multimodal journey in a single transaction using their smartphone or desktop devices. The platform offers instant access to book buses, trains, taxis, demand responsive transport (DRT), car clubs, air travel and car hire, with bicycle hire and ferries being added to the app as the project expands. To aid with achieving project objectives around a modal shift to sustainable travel options, active travel modes such as walking and cycling are also included as part of the solution and prioritised within the app when users are planning their journeys. To support tourism in the Highlands the app can also be used to find and book hotels.
Cost & Booking:Members: Free; Non-Members: £5.00 (including VAT). Booking through Corby is required. Quote booking code SR0501.

Topic & Speaker:Achieving Net Zero and more equitable transport systems by 2030

The transport sector knows what it needs to do in order to achieve Net Zero emissions, and more equitable outcomes for society. The COVID-19 pandemic has put the challenges our world faces in a more urgent light - we have no more time for talk about doing something. So at this year's Mobility Camp (the successor to Transport Planning Camp) we want to look at radical decarbonisation of how we get around, whilst also improving the diversity of the transport workforce. Mobility Camp is an unconference where we don't just want to debate and share openly in a highly collaborative event. We want to do. We are planning an event where transport planners, engineers, pressure groups, communities, policy makers, and politicians can get together and decide what needs doing, by when, and how we will all work together to do it. And then make a start on it, there and then. We want you to be part of this. We plan to hold the event in person, subject to COVID-19 restrictions. In organising the event, we will respect the rules on social distancing, and follow guidance from the Scottish Government and the University to ensure the event is COVID safe. If we need to shift the event online, or if there are any other changes that affect the event, we will let you know. full dateails at mobilitycamp.co.uk/

Day, Date & Time:(1545 for 1600)
Venue:Zoom webinar
Topic & Speaker:Per Fajerson formerly of Maersk will deliver an online presentation about Mauritius in general and in particular, the transport and logistics sector on the island.

CILT corporate member Glasgow Caledonian University has a teaching link with Mauritius, an island nation in the Indian Ocean about 2,000 kilometres (1,200 mi) off the southeast coast of the African continent. The people of Mauritius are highly diverse in ethnicity, culture, language and faith. The island's government is closely modelled on the Westminster parliamentary system, and Mauritius is highly ranked for democracy and for economic and political freedom. Mauritius is the only African country to be in the "very high" category on the Human Development Index. Mauritius is also ranked as the most competitive, and one of the most developed economies in the African region. The government provides free universal health care, free education up through the tertiary level and free public transportation for students, senior citizens and the disabled.
Cost & Booking:Members: Free; Non-Members: £10.00. Booking through Corby is required. Quote booking code SR0503.

Topic & Speaker:"Shared transport and mobility hubs" by Rachael Murphy, Director for Scotland, CoMoUK

Shared transport and mobility hubs have potential for helping us build back better from the pandemic by addressing inequalities, enhancing place-making and working towards net zero targets. A mobility hub is being provided by Angus Council at Brechin, while new railway stations in the Scottish Borders could benefit from this approach: the local Community Trust are providing for active travel at Stow, and Reston on the East Coast Main Line will be the railhead for a whole string of places including Duns, Eyemouth, Coldingham and St Abbs. Marian Marsh will bring us up to date with latest thinking and best practice from near and afar.
Cost & Booking:Members: Free; Non-Members: £10.00. Booking through Corby is required. Quote booking code SR0502.
