International VOC Symposium- Sustainable Cities: sustainable and innovative public transport

The meeting is organized in collaboration with one of the members of VOC (Association of Public Transport Cities in the Netherlands): the city of Arnhem, in the Netherlands since 1949 eminently known as sustainable public transport city by, amongst others, the Trolleybus. This same Trolley system went in the last few decades through various popularity stages: from innovative and unique (1980’s) through expensive and impractical (late 90's) to all the way at the time and durable (present). Though the Dutch municipalities are no ordering parties for public transport, they keep their responsibilities on subjects such as road management, spatial planning, air quality and accessibility. Under the name "green public transport"  the connection between science and administrative practice is explained and innovative and sustainable public transport projects are introduced.
