Posted by Luke Upton on Aug 9, 2016

“Invention is not enough. Tesla invented the electric power we use, but he struggled to get it out to people. You have to combine both things: invention and innovation focus, plus the company that can commercialize things and get them to people.” - Larry Page.

This quote from the co-founder of Google, I think sums up neatly the chapters in this digital guide, the 18th we’ve published, brought to you in partnership with WorldlineInventing something is not enough, you have to not only get it to the public, but ensure they actually use it as well.  We know the challenges that our industry faces; doing less with more, managing capacity challenges, keeping pace with rising passenger numbers, matching and exceeding on-board expectations, upgrading outdated technology, environmental issues and more.

In writing this guide, our Editor spoke to experts who are actually delivering solutions to these problems. These aren’t just hypothetical ideas either, but are real life innovations that are improving our transport networks today so download this exclusive guide now!
