Paul at Modelling World conference: AVs and Hyperloop ‘could transform travel patterns’

Paul was recently invited to speak at the Modelling World conference – the longest running conference for transport, data and urban professionals in Europe.

With 30 years experience in transport economics, Paul spoke about the impacts of “disruptive transport technology”, giving an upbeat assessment of a future in which highly autonomous vehicles (AVs) and Hyperloop magnetic levitation technology transform travel patterns. He then went on to chair the morning session on the same topic. Paul’s input focused on economic issues and land use responses to different transport technologies.
