What is TPM?

For 18 years TPM has brought transport practitioners together to debate, share and engage.  To think critically and be empowered to make transport a force for good.  This year more than ever, TPM will provide a home for the profession, an arena to find common solutions, to ensure that we can emerge from this crisis primed as a profession of ‘superheroes’ to build a world that is better than the one we had before.  

PTRC is proud to announce that TPM will be held on September 2nd and 3rd , using an exciting online platform which we have tailored to ensure that #2020TPM will be the best one yet. Participants will be able to engage with 130 dynamic speakers over 2 days, debate will be facilitated in dedicated break out rooms, there will be a virtual exhibition area, Keynotes delivered ‘on stage’ and of course the annual awards.  What’s more,  you no longer have to juggle sessions,  as all presentations will be recorded and available following the event. 

Moreover, unlike many we’re passing on all cost savings, reducing ticket prices by as much as 66%, so that #2020TPM can be accessible to as many people as possible. This means that you can benefit from a full two day conference for only £149 + VAT!

Coaches: an important (but neglected) public transport modeBOOK NOW
15/09/2020 17:00:00 - 15/09/2020 19:00:00

When: 15 September 17:00 - 19:00
Where: Zoom Webinar

  • Peter Bradley London Tourist Coach Operators Association 
  • Emeritus Professor Peter White, University of Westminster

Coaches are often overlooked as an important mode of passenger transport.  Yet they carry significant numbers of inter-urban passengers, both competing with rail and on routes without rail services: surface access to airports is particularly important. Coaches make a significant contribution to commuter journeys in a number of cities, notably London. School transport, excursions, tours and private hire are traditional roles.  British deregulation from 1980 has been followed by other countries, notably France and Germany, with which parallels may be drawn.
Our speakers will address questions such as: How do coaches contribute in economic and social terms? Are coaches adequately appreciated by transport and urban planners? Should more infrastructure be provided for coaches, for example better stops and interchanges or priorities on motorways?
