May 2024


In response to equity, climate, health and economic crises worldwide, ITDP and VREF convened global transport stakeholders in 2022-2023 to consider the importance of public transport as the main enabler for accessible, resilient and just cities.

This year-long MOBILIZE Learning Lab program gathered expert researchers and practitioners from around the world to ideate on the actions needed to move cities towards better public transport systems for all. While the future of public transport can encompass a number of diverse issues—from innovative technologies to electric vehicles—the Learning Lab focused specifically on exploring the future through the lenses of equity, resilience, and financial sustainability.
