Today Commissioner for Transport Violeta Bulc will officially open the Digital Transport Days in Helsinki together with the Finnish Minister for Transport, Sanna Marin. This year’s conference focuses on data-sharing, automation and digitally-enabled services, and how these digital opportunities can serve to reduce emissions from transport. It is a follow up to the declaration on Digital Transport adopted two years ago.

Commissioner Bulc said: “Digitalisation is reshaping European transport. New digital ways, such as integrated logistic services, U-Space, micro-mobility and ‘Mobility as a Service’, deliver on efficiency, Vision Zero and various new opportunities.”

In the margins of the conference, Commissioner Bulc will also attend the fifth ‘Mobility as a Service’ summit focusing on sustainable mobility. The three-day conference, co-organised with the Finnish Presidency of the EU, is expected to bring together close to one thousand actors involved in smart transport from all across Europe.
