8# Asking the right transport questions

Transports Publics 2018 - The European Mobility Exhibition - 12, 13, 14 June 2018, Paris
Debating the future of public transport
From governance to funding, and from energy transition to services and more besides, all the key issues in the sector will be on the table at the GART and UTP Congress on June 12-13. Two especially important topics will be dealt with in plenary sessions: the implications of France’s Mobility Orientation Act, and the management of mobility infrastructures and services. There’ll be a whole host of workshops focusing on issues affecting the industry across Europe: open data, self-driving vehicles, the “Mobility as a Service” model, passengers’ rights, and more.
