ITS UK responds to Liberal Democrat Manifesto

Max Sugarman
Chief Executive

Responding to the Liberal Democrat General Election Manifesto, Max Sugarman, Chief Executive of Intelligent Transport Systems UK (ITS UK), said: “It is good to see recognition of the importance of transport technology in the Liberal Democrat Manifesto, with commitments to integrate bus, rail and light rail ticketing systems, encourage ‘on-demand’ bus services where needed and provide greater support for local authorities with a joined-up fund for transport improvements.

“As ITS UK’s Manifesto for the Future of Transport sets out, whether through demand responsive transport, data and AI or connected and automated mobility, technology has a key role to play in supporting our transport system, helping to deliver a more efficient, greener and safer network for all.”
