In "The future of public transport - Autonomous Utopia or Railbound Perfection?" Andrew Braddock will review the current state of the art, building on the history of service provision over the past 200 years, and explain the likely impact of measures to improve urban air quality and relieve congestion, while exploring the potential for IMC, MaaS, CAVs and a plethora of acronyms yet to be applied!

Andrew Braddock retired from Transport for London, where he was Head of Access & Mobility, in 2003 to establish “A B O U T” (Andrew Braddock On Urban Transport or About Bus, Overground, Underground, Tram) as an independent consultant.  Andrew is Chairman of the Light Rail Transit Association and of the Promotions Group of industry body UKTram.

He describes himself as a passionate European and a lifelong advocate of electric public transport in the form of trams and trolleybuses.
