UITP MENA, Dubai, Feb 2022

February 15, 2022

Thanks to  UITP MENA and RTA for hosting a fabulous 3 day conference in Dubai. Highlights for me were:

  • Speaking about electric bus procurement as part of a sustainability session. Some photos are below of my presentation which focussed on the good, the bad and the ugly of electric bus procurement. With electric bus being classed as a zero emissions bus how to make the complicated process of procurement slightly easier can only help to introduce electric buses on roads sooner. My white paper
  • Hearing about transport plans post COVID-19 including Transdev’s Blazefield community engagement to get more customers back on the bus. This was a positive success story and great to see Harrogate mentioned at an international conference.
  • Listening to the Keynote speaker, Wiebe Waker’s epic journey from Netherlands to Dubai, A+ for effort!
  • Lovely hospitality from the daily coffee apothecary on site to a networking dinner in the shadow of the  Burj Khalifa.
  • Hearing about the latest report from UITP Mena on transport trends in the Middle East.

Next stop: #UITP2023 in Barcelona from 4th to 7th June 2023.
