TWSW» (TravelWatch SouthWest - website) General Meeting: Your Vision for Getting Around by Public Transport

The TravelWatch SouthWest meetings are back. These sessions provide a unique opportunity for passengers and communities to engage with operators, policy makers, and local transport authorities together.

Remarkable things happen when you get the right mix of people in the room.

This meeting revolves around the need to create a vision and discussing the key questions:
* How will connectivity patterns change in the future and what role will public transport play?
* What support do places/communities need to grow and change?
* What are the community priorities and how can we work together to support them?
* Where is the funding going to come from and how can we deliver more with less?
* How can we collaborate to meet our shared objectives?

Professor Graham Parkhurst (University of West of England and TWSW Director) is setting the socio/economic/environmental scene,

Nigel Blackler (Cornwall Council) will be inspiring the audience around unity of vision and delivering an outcome which improves journey experience quality across the region and supports communities.

Mark Hopwood, (Managing Director, GWR (Great Western Railway)) considers the way in which rail operators can address passenger need in light of the emerging social, economic, and environmental themes.

Go South Coast examine the ways in which can adapt to meet the evolving scene and highlights the essentials steps to be taken now.

Further speakers are to be announced.
