UK National FPT Campaign - Research site

FPT Research Group – Inaugural Conference

FPT Research Group – Call for Research Contributions
Inaugural Free Public Transport Conference – Birmingham Britannia Hotel, October 16th, 11am – 5pm
A message from Bob Jeffery (Research Coordinator)
The national Campaign for Free Public Transport has now set a date and booked a venue for our inaugural conference. Taking a somewhat broader approach than has been outlined in previous communications, we now wish to invite any and all academic speakers who wish to debate the merits of Free Public Transport specifically, but also issues around transport and society more broadly. Core themes are as follows:
*Evaluating Public Transport in UK
*Transport Economics
*Transport and Social Inclusion
*Transport and Climate Change
*Evaluating the merits of public transport subsidies
*Campaigning on Transport Issues
