Day 2 of #RTC18. Hearing @MaaSScotland talking about #MaaS. But how does that tie with rural areas that have no connectivity? At least they are trialling it.
By the way, it's a cracking mix at #RTC18. Spoken to technologists, policy makers, activists, voluntary groups, and concerned locals. And that was just at lunch yesterday. Great event @ScotRuralAction audience at the Scottish Rural Transport Convention.
And here I am presenting yesterday. Using memes. Because explaining data sharing and #MaaS can only be done using internetzes. #RTC18
@CTAUK1 makes a crucial point. What often makes or breaks services is personal assistance, even from vehicle to door. You can't replace that with tech, yet. #RTC18
But tech can help the sector. Particularly open source tech that can help with coordination with highly-utilised vehicles like CT vehicles. #rtc18
A presenter made the point that we shouldn't invest in public transport that doesn't work. We should invest in public transport in its widest sense, e.g. lift sharing. I agree completely. #RTC18
Now Maggie Lawson makes a very important point on personalisation. What future mobility advocates promote is personalisation at scale. True personalisation needs people, effort, and money. CT does that well. #RTC18 Rural Transport Convention
Now in a session on young people and transport. And there are young people here. Key messages: cost and accessibility important, but importantly get them involved. Show you give a damn about them. Word. #RTC18 Rural Transport Convention Workshop
Now Jane who is leading @RYP2018 is talking about how housing, jobs, and transport form a trio of woes that work together to make it hard for young people to build a life. All not easy to tackle. #RTC18
Finally, talking community innovation. For me, it’s learning how it’s done to be honest #RTC19
Post its. Writing. Markers. Innovation!! #RTC18
Now the day being rounded off with a run through of #NTS2 by @TransportScot. Hopefully what was talked about here at #RTC18 will inform it
And that’s it. A cracking couple of days, that I will blog on later this week. Thanks to @ScotRuralAction and @weeyinontour for organising this, and particularly the latter for brilliantly MCing. See you again in 2 years?
