Transport Conference delegates get moving with SPT ZoneCard

AET conference

Delegates attending the Association of European Transport’s (AET) annual conference have been given SPT ZoneCards to help them get around the city during their stay.

The conference, which has been held in Glasgow for the past three years, attracts over 400 transport practitioners, researchers and environmentalists from as far afield as Japan.

During last year’s conference attendees were invited on a tour of the Subway, with many taking a keen interest in the system and the plans for modernisation.

At that time, work at Hillhead Station had been underway for just three months.

Delegates returning to Glasgow for this year’s conference will be able to use their ZoneCards to take a trip to the recently completed flagship.

An AET spokesperson said:

“The annual European Transport Conference brings together influential transport officials and academics from Europe and the rest of the world. By providing free ZoneCards to all delegates, Strathclyde Partnership for Transport is enabling key players from the global transport community to move around the city of Glasgow with ease and we express our greatest thanks for this.”

Informative sessions on policy issues, research findings and best practice relating to the European transport agenda will take place over a three period at the Crowne Plaza between 8 – 10 October.
