Innovating in transport for the 2024 Olympic Games

18 November 2019

The Ile de France (greater Paris) region is now home to more than 10 million people. What transport challenges will the 2024 Olympic Games be facing in such a huge city? What methods and innovations could be implemented? Beyond the 2024 Olympic Games, the question of mobility in large cities in the context of the ecological transition is a major issue.

Today, some forty cities around the world have 10 million inhabitants. By 2030, an estimated 4.9 billion people will be living in a city of more than 1 million inhabitants. The public transport industry faces a real challenge in the Paris region, but also in many megacities around the world. What innovative solutions are envisaged both in terms of transport system design and usage?

In order to reflect on these different questions and discuss the innovations that are currently being studied, ESTACA will host Alain Krakovitch, Managing Director of SNCF Transilien and author of the book Metropolitrain, for an opening conference on the theme: Mass transit, what innovations in the context of the fight against global warming?

A round table will then be held with various players working on innovations to be developed for transport by 2024.
