Sustainability is a hot topic in public transport with the COP26 climate conference in situ, and in light of the UK Government’s Bus Back Better strategy, but what exactly is ‘sustainability’ and what do we need to do? That’s where we would like to help.
We’re introducing the first in our series of Ticketer Talks webinars, where we will be discussing future innovations and trends with experts from the transport industry.
We would love for you to join us for our inaugural webinar:

Anthony Prior – Innovation Lead, The Big Lemon
Anthony is the newest member of The Big Lemon team and joins as the organisation’s Innovation Lead. His brief is to explore the opportunities for The Big Lemon to bring together different modes of sustainable transport into a community-based platform, to promote behaviour change and hopefully remove some of the barriers that prevent more people from choosing active and sustainable transport. This vision comprises both digital opportunities via a single platform, and physical options with a sustainable transport hub on the outskirts of the city where we can offer park & ride, bikeshare, bike hire, EV car share, EV car hire, and access to the local bus network.
