5G and Telecommunication in Public Transport

5G and telecommunication is shaping the future of transportation by providing better connectivity and low latency to enhance the way we travel.

New technology such as 5G will result in changes across the transport sector by enabling transport operators to improve public transport operations and planning, including dynamic transport planning.

The growing demand and potential benefits of 5G in transportation cannot be understated. For instance:

  • The rollout of 5G communications in cities will enable smart connectivity and vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communications.
  • Real time monitoring of public transport vehicles and user demand management will allow better matching between supply and demand.
  • Through mobile technology, 5G is expected to enable end-to-end connectivity across our cities and beyond.

What does all this mean for transportation and cities?

Many telecommunication companies are looking to expand their portfolio by offering innovative products to transport operators. 5G will play an important role in the roll out of autonomous mobility in the cities.

Where to start?

UITP has formed Information Technology & Telecommunication Committee (ITT) to invite telecommunication players. Leading telecommunication companies and experts will attend IT-TRANS to share their expertise.
