METRO RAIL & LIGHT RAIL  SUMMIT  

 

METRO RAIL & LIGHT RAIL  SUMMIT

 

Metro and light rail systems are the backbone of mobility within cities. As these grow and expand their importance in guaranteeing sustainable travel, they're becoming more and more relevant. However, these systems have seen a drop-off in ridership as a result of the pandemic, so ensuring passengers feel safe is a priority for all operators. Rail Live’s Metro Rail & Light Rail Summit will unpack how systems can respond to changing demands, what technological advances are enabling these, and showcase their power to regenerate urban areas.
