Rethinking rail

A country’s mass transit system – long-distance rail, metro, tram and light rail – forms the backbone of a nation’s transport infrastructure, bridging connectivity for commuters to get to schools, workplaces and businesses, and elevating its population’s access to education and opportunities.

With the coronavirus pandemic triggering a new order of remote working and schooling, how has the disruption changed the way transport infrastructure stakeholders and commuters view mass transit systems, particularly in areas of safety and its design, finance, build and operating model?

Will transit ridership, demand and future commuting patterns change? What must be done now to ensure relevance, commercial viability as well as resilience and interoperability of new rail projects?

This webinar will discuss what future-ready urban rail systems look like for Asia, particularly in the Philippines, and the ways to deliver them more efficiently and cost-effectively.
