About IT-TRANS

IT-TRANS is the leading International Conference and exhibition focused on IT solutions for Public Transport.

The 2022 edition of IT TRANS will place in person and online from 8 to 10 March 2022, in Karlsruhe Germany. You can attend the full experience on-site or attend a selection of the sessions online from wherever you happen to be.

The event will welcome decision-makers and industry experts in the public transport sector to exchange, discuss and redevelop digital solutions.

IT-TRANS will bring you up to speed with all of the latest technological innovations that matter in public transport. From on-demand mobility, MaaS, autonomous vehicle, technology is moving fast, and IT-TRANS is here to provide you with the knowledge needed to prepare for the future.

Since 2008, the biennial event co-organised by Messe Karlsruhe and UITP (The International Association of Public Transport) has been bringing the public transport together to inspire change.

We are in the process of designing a safe and accessible event where our audience can come together safely.

Mobility in Karlsruhe

mobility made in Karlsruhe

The future belongs to ecological and intelligent smart city concepts that combine mobility, sustainable energy systems and digitalisation.

In the Karlsruhe region, leading experts from the public transport sector have joined forces to tackle mobility challenges facing the city. The region offers the perfect ecosystem that fosters innovation.

The city has developed sustainable and efficient mobility systems flexibly based on-demand by combining different modes of transport. Passengers reach their destinations – quickly, comfortably, safely and ecologically - even across borders to French Alsace.

Innovative mobility solutions like the tram-train system that were developed and successfully tested in Karlsruhe are being implemented throughout Europe and worldwide.

Karlsruhe has always been a mobility pioneer. Today this translates into a strong commitment to design the mobility of the future. We enjoy a unique ecosystem that brings together science, universities, industry, politics and a trailblazing public transport provider. The innovative capacity of the Karlsruhe Mobility Cluster is strongly recognised in the public transport sector. One example is the unique Innovation Partnership of Karlsruhe with UITP, the International Association of Public Transport, headquartered in Brussels.
