The ITS World Congress a success on all levels!
Good words that promise to have positive repercussions. Because that is one of the other exciting points of the ITS World Congress: the congress leaves, but the projects, the knowledge and the ambitions remain in the city – and not least have a long-term effect on the quality of life and stay in Hamburg. Dr. Anjes Tjarks, Senator for Transport and Mobility Change, also emphasises this: “An ITS Congress that breaks all records in the middle of the pandemic and causes a sensation internationally – no one could have expected this and it is a great testimony to the many people who have worked on the congress over the years. Hamburg is now a fixed point on the map for digital and sustainable mobility. But it is also important to me that many of the things we can marvel at here at the ITS Congress will sustainably improve mobility and people’s lives for many years to come – be it the digital S-Bahn, autonomous shuttles or intelligent transport systems. That is why it was particularly important for us to offer a Public Day within the ITS Congress for the public. I think it’s great that the people of Hamburg accepted it so well and that a total of around 4,000 people from Hamburg and the surrounding area took advantage of this opportunity.”
