About: 

This year's 17th UITP Asia-Pacific Assembly will be jointly hosted by JE East and Tokyo Metro in Tokyo from 8 to 10 November, with the theme 'Quest for Quality and Quantity'.

With exponential rise of megacities in this region and a growing demand on service quality, public transport planning and operations must strive for an equilibrium that maximises quality and quantity.  Tokyo, being the most populous city in the world, is a perfect case study to examine the critical success factors to this conquest. 

The enriched programme consists of a Welcome Reception (8th November), one day scientific forum (9th November), and half day of Technical Visit (10th November). Please join us at the Assembly to find out Asia Pacific's journey to openly innovate and cultivate people-centric public transport systems for the Quest for Quality and Quantity.
 

Local hosts: Tokyo Metro and East Japan Railway Company

Speakers: 

The keynote speaker, Prof. Katsuhiro Nishinari from University to Tokyo will be presenting his renowned interdisciplinary research, Jamology, explaining traffic congestions and solutions in overcoming this pressing issue in many Asian cities. 

Other speakers will be sharing their experience and case studies on the topics of:

- The Balancing Act: Innovative Solutions in Increasing Capacity and Preserving the Quality of Service in Public Transport System

- People at heart of the system: Public Transport to Lead Mobility as a Service

- Working together – connecting with new and smart mobility solutions
