Smart Working is the third workshop in our series on Smart Futures, this event explored how technological change will reshape key aspects of how we travel, how we work, and the very fabric of our cities. What will a Smart Future look like? How will we get there and how will it impact on the demand for public transport?

This discussion talked about the new strategies needed to continue to deliver efficient and viable transport infrastructure.

Key issues for discussion included:

  • How will future technology revolutionise the work we carry out?
  • How can technology help us to plan and reshape the workforce of tomorrow?
  • What will be the impact on working patterns and transport demand?
  • What opportunities will tech transformation create to improve journeys and the transport available?
  • Why is technology important, and what factors should we consider when planning future transport strategy?
  • What will be the impact on the places where we live and work?
