Invite to Seminar on Public Transport Futures for Canberra, 8 May 2023

We invite you to a seminar on trackless trams and other public transport options for Canberra.

When: 8th May, 2023         

Time: 7.30 pm to 9.30 pm.

Where: Canberra College Theatre, Phillip, ACT

The seminar aims to provide Canberrans with an insight into alternative public transport technologies/solutions that are available/will be available to improve public transport in Canberra — alternatives that could provide a more efficient, cost effective, public transport system. The seminar will feature three keynote speakers who will present papers on:

  • driverless cars
  • electric buses
  • trackless trams.

The highlight of the night is expected to be the trackless tram presentation by Alex Paton, who has some 30 years’ experience in the infrastructure sector, and is currently employed by a company that provides access to leading edge technology, suitable for the mass transit market, including Digital Rail Transit (also known as a Trackless Tram). The other two speakers are local, well qualified and well-known. After the presentations, the speakers will form a panel and take questions from the floor.

Attendance at the seminar is by invitation only (numbers are limited by fire regulations). We are sending invites to residents’ groups and community councils, current and former Canberra MLAs, members of business groups and other interested parties.

If you are interested in attending, could you please let us know as soon as possible, by email to president@deakinresidents.asn.au so we send you a ticket closer to the seminar date?

This meeting is supported by the Deakin and Yarralumla Residents Associations, assisted by Anthony Senti.
