A scientific and technical colloquium at the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation.
A taxi festival organised with the city of Lisbon and a public survey on the taxi and its uses ... three actions conducted by IVM between now and September 2007 in order to put the issue of the taxi on the urban agenda.
The colloquium is aimed at professionals, urban transport experts, researchers, municipal officials and politicians. It seeks foster the exchange of experiences and to bring out new ideas for sustainable mobilities that are consistent with lifestyles in the modern city, where the taxi has a key role to play. The objective is to analyse the factors that inhibit the growth of taxi services, to evaluate the potential of the taxi, and to propose technical, social, organisational and economic solutions.
