BEST workshops 2021

BEST will arrange four workshops in 2021. Below is an overview of topics, dates and links to the registration page and programs for the remaining workshops. We will publish and update the programs on an ongoing basis. 

Workshop 3: How to combine public transport and micro-mobility? Hosted by Ruter 30th of September 2021, from 09.00 to 12.00 (CEST). 

Topic: Electric scooters have conquered cities around the world and changed the way people travel. But is this a form of mobility created only for the big cities? Or can the scooters also be adapted to less densely populated areas - and contribute to a comprehensive mobility offer? This workshop focus on what role the e-scooter could play in providing mobility, and how it could be integrated into the public transport system.

Target group: People in PTA's working with all aspects of integrating e-scooters in the public transport system (marketing, information, pricing etc). 


Preliminary program - last updated 8th of September 2021



Workshop 4: MaaS/Mobility (together with the Nordic informal mobility group) Successful and less successful mobility services. November. Hosted by Movia.
