The national rail network is essential to many people’s daily lives, and to the success of the UK economy. 1.7 billion passengers travelled by rail in this country last year, commuting to work and study, visiting friends and family, and accessing public services and leisure opportunities. The railway also carries essential products and commodities, supporting our manufacturing, construction and energy sectors, and ensuring that shop shelves remain stocked all year round. Demand for rail has doubled since the mid-1990s and is projected to increase by another 15% by 2024. 

The speakers from the Department for Transport will speak on travel behaviour and the Government’s Strategic Vision for Rail to use data more intelligently, and increasing collaboration between the rail industry and the tech sector. David Berry from Stephenson Harwood will speak on the legal challenges which may impact on the sharing of such rail data. 

Afterwards there will be a panel discussion to exchange ideas and how Government and the tech sector can work together to improve the quality and openness of rail data and to increase collaboration between the rail and tech sectors, for the benefit of passengers, the railway, and the UK economy.
