Interchange: Moving Thinking Forward

Leading debate on the future of cities, transport and infrastructure

We want to hear your thoughts

The coronavirus pandemic has dramatically altered our normal daily life and routines.

We would like to understand how people felt about travelling less and how this experience may influence travel choices in the future to better protect our environment for future generations.

In our short survey we would like to understand your travel behaviours and how these might change in future to better protect our environment now, and for future generations.

The results from this survey will contribute to the Museum’s latest Interchange series on Rethinking Sustainable Cities report.

Data, data everywhere

In partnership with Railway Industry Association (RIA)

Date: Thursday 24 September 2020
Time: 16:30 – 18:15 BST
Webinar: Microsoft Teams

Our railway network produces a significant quantity of data each day, which if properly captured, analysed and utilised, can help provide better services to passengers and freight users, and ensure we maintain assets more effectively, thereby reducing costs. This event will explore how data is currently being used on the rail network and will look at the opportunities and challenges of getting even more use of it in the future.

Join our speakers and take part in the debate to discuss:

  • What do we see as the next steps for the use of data on the rail network?
  • What are the barriers to the greater use of data? How can they be overcome?
  • What challenges will the sector face in developing areas like MaaS and predictive maintenance?

Rethinking Transport Finance and Funding Report front cover

Rethinking Transport Finance and Funding Report

In partnership with Arup

City and national governments in the UK must act now to rethink funding and finance models to pay for future transport infrastructure developments, says a new report published today.

The Rethinking Transport Finance and Funding report says that additional funding options must be investigated to unlock new sources of income alongside sustained public investment.

The report draws on roundtable discussions with transport, legal and finance industry leaders, policy makers and academics as part of Interchange, London Transport Museum’s thought leadership programme.

Produced by London Transport Museum and Arup in partnership with global transportation company Thales and international law firm Gowling WLG.
