You can watch the highlights of the UITP World Congress and Exhibition here.

With more than 15 000 single-entry visitors to the UITP Exhibition, the presence of ITxPT platforms on the UITP stand did not pass unnoticed. The ITxPT area showcased how standards for digital systems can be used and deployed in public transport. Moreover, Emmanuel de Verdalle, DIGIMOBEE, presented the initiative: “Set up in 2013, the ITxPT initiative federates public transport stakeholders to support the implementation on the field and deployment of IT standardised architecture on-board vehicles while collecting and sharing the relative best practices. ”

The interest around ITxPT has increased also with the presentation of a new Alstom’s product, Attractis, which took place during the UITP World Congress and Exhibition. Attractis, a full tramway system with optimized costs and lead times, is integrated into the existing transport network thanks to ITxPT and its open architecture.We wish to thank all visitors to the UITP World Congress and Exhibition in Milan. We are already looking forward to see you in 2 years at the Global Public Transport Summit in Montreal!
