Mobility & Transport Forum

The IIID Mobility & Transport Forum serves the shared interests of planners, designers, researchers, suppliers, users, transport authorities and educators. It provides a forum for face-to-face discussions on the latest developments and trends and their expected impact.

Over the years the Forum has successfully created a network of individuals and teams who share a common interest in traffic/transport related design, research and technology.

The Information Design Journal has published two special issues on Traffic & Transport design, edited by IIID founder Peter Simlinger:
Part I, idj 17.2
Part II, idj 22.2

2017: Information as a (public) service

Ever more public and private players are involved in providing mobility services and information. The design of manageable and understandable information environments is a major challenge – for providers as well as users. Who owns information (design) for mobility: designers,
communities, transport authorities, data sources? Does standardisation also mean loss of community identity? Who moderates/advocates design qualities in the public interest?
