 Policies for Traffic, Trucks and Cities

The ITS (UK) RUC Interest Group’s tenth Annual Conference takes place at a time when fresh perspectives are essential, and when European cooperation is becoming increasingly important to help solve congestion and environmental challenges. The conference puts charging in a policy context, including case studies and professional discussion on meeting needs for sustainable transport solutions. The well-established group offers a thought-provoking, informative and informal forum for connecting people and ideas.
