About the Conference

Conference on Advanced Systems in Public Transport

This conference is the 16th in the series that serves as a forum for the international community of researchers, practitioners and vendors on all aspects of public transport planning and operations. CASPT covers significant contributions to the theory and application of systems and methodologies for advancing and improving public transport planning and operations. CASPT does not only encourage the generation and presentation of new ideas, but also intends to instigate productive collaborations between participants from academia, industry, and government.

Since 1997, the conference has met every 3 years. The conference originated in 1975, under the name of “Computer-Aided Scheduling of Public Transport”. The name was updated in 2009 to better reflect the expanded scope of activities in the conference.
