Research on Transformative Mobility
Knowledge flows, transport flows – notes from an information science perspective on sustainable mobility developments.
“Inter-modal Transport Data Sharing in Hong Kong”
The Knowledge Café – An Online Conversation
Public transport futures arising out of the disruption from Covid-19
Public transport has declined between 40 and 90% around the world during the coronavirus pandemic – what is the situation in Hong Kong? How are operators responding? What are the implications for the future, in terms of demand, travel behaviour, new measures of social distancing while traveling?
Everyone is invited to join the conversation. It’s not a webinar, you will not be muted, and the session won’t be recorded.
Date: 19 June 2020, 14:00-15:00 (HKT)

Conference 17 September 2020, Hong Kong
Rethinking “Vehicles First”: a new discourse on Hong Kong’s sustainable mobility
Sustainable mobility is a globally trending issue in the post-pandemic world. What was considered niche knowledge pre-COVID-19 is now highly sought-after expertise, as cities seek to rewrite short-and long-term transportation policy in line with new paradigms of public health and public space.
With this in mind, Transit Jam, Hong Kong’s first and only registered newspaper dedicated to sustainable mobility, is launching its first annual conference, to shine a light on the sustainable mobility movement and address the challenges in Hong Kong transport.
On behalf of the organising committee, we would be honoured if you would consider presenting at this inaugural event, at which we expect around 150 transport professionals, NGOs, academics, media and government officials.
The theme is: Rethinking “Vehicles First”: a new discourse on Hong Kong’s sustainable mobility. The full Call for Papers is https://transitjam.com/2020/06/12/applications-open-for-transit-jam-conference/ , but all presentations should aim to rethink Hong Kong’s unspoken “Vehicles First” policy; and the deadline is 26 July, 2020, 6pm HKT.
We welcome ideas on transport drivers (macro and policy level), urban engineering and traffic enforcement.
