About Future Transport : What's the Plan?
Throughout history our cities have been shaped by their transport systems.
We are about to enter the most radical period of change in our transport infrastructure since the Industrial Revolution. But this time, it will be more than just a singular new technology that proves to be the game changer.
Driverless vehicles, door to door mass transit and subscription based services will place transit in the palm of our hands. They will come together in a richly connected mash up of technology, transport, apps and online services.
There is no doubt it will reshape the physical form of our cities.
But what is it that we should we be planning for, and how fast do we need to act?
Building on last year’s Festival of Architecture and Design Future Forum: The Age of the Driverless Car, the expert panel at this year’s forum Future Transport: What’s the Plan? will explore the pace of the changes that are happening, and speculate on how the instruments for planning our cities will need to adapt to deal with these changes.
