Event Description:

This expert seminar will compare long-term public transport planning concepts in the two cities, with a particular emphasis on clean air policies, new technologies (e.g. LNG or hybrid busses) and other ‘zero carbon emissions’ strategies (e.g. biking and walkability concepts) as well as measures to create attractive unified paying systems (e.g. HK Octopus system).

Hamburg’s new mobility concepts and an expanded transport infrastructure with the highest eco-friendly standards as possible will encourage citizens to use mixed-mode transit systems. Lower emissions will improve the quality of urban life. Hamburg develops eco-friendly transport management systems for commuters and freight forwarders as well as biking and walkability concepts. Public transport ranges from train and underground rail network to emission-free buses that will enhance the extending system. The various modes of transport are to be linked up at mobility service points in order to make private car travel superfluous. Linked to new communication systems Hamburg  turns from traffic to mobility – even turning back open space to the public.

This is a CCL event for HKBU students.
