Benefit from the opportunities in the mobility industry in Mexico!

redesign of the urban mobility infrastructure

8 - 10 November 2022

Redesigning the urban infrastructure and mobility planning are key priorities for the local authorities in Latin America. With an urgent need to upgrade mobility infrastructure, the Mexican Government has announced several multimillion-dollar investment projects for the coming years. Road safety, expansion and maintenance of the mobility infrastructure are high on the agenda as well as enhancing public transport and developing micro-mobility infrastructure. 

Achieving sustainable urban mobility, which includes the road safety plan in order to meet the objectives of the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2021-2030, is one of the great challenges for medium and large cities.

The conference
The Intertraffic Mexico International Conference Program integrates the different actors involved in urban mobility to present advances and goals achieved, show success stories, and propose possible solutions that favour solving the problems that arise in different cities. From Mexico and Latin America.

During Intertraffic Mexico 2022 leading international and national companies, and public and private institutions will share their knowledge, technology and solutions for smart and safe mobility with (local) authorities and other stakeholders from Latin America. During three days the following topics will be addressed:

  • Smart Mobility: worldwide trends in autonomous, connected, electric and shared mobility
  • Road Safety: internationally proven concepts for safe roads and vision zero
  • Urban Mobility: integrated approach to city infrastructure, mobility planning and public transport
