The conference witnessed an international gathering of public transport participants from the academia, industry and government. Keynote addresses focused on policy challenges in public transportation, impacts of Covid 19 on travel behaviour, and application of game theoretic approach to public transportation. The sessions on timetabling, vehicle and crew scheduling centered around the application of Operations Research based methods to tackle these problems. A technical visit to Allenby Light Rail station and a tour to Jerusalem were also arranged as part of the conference.
