Impressions from the event: Integrated Public Transport in City Regions

On Thursday 27 April, transport planners, professionals consultants and representatives of municipalities from the Tallinn city region came together with researchers from the CARIN-PT team to discuss challenges and opportunities for integrated public transport in city regions.

The full-day event at Kultuurikatel offered a varied programme with inspiring inputs, lessons from international and regional case studies and plenty of space for discussion and exchange among the participants.

The discussion was stimulated by a keynote speech by Prof. Karel Martens on the idea of transport justice and the role of fare-free public transport, as well as by the contributions of Liivar Luts on the creation of the Tallinn Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) and Kristi Grišakov on the role of public transport stops in a changing mobility environment (PeatusKOHT).

An interactive transport game invited participants to experience the mobility challenges in the city of Tallinn for themselves. In the afternoon, international team members of CARIN-PT presented the main working topics of the project and discussed with the participants local and international challenges related to micromobility, on-demand public transport, transport-oriented development and fares.

Further insights on the workshops will be published in due course.
