The International Light Rail and Tram Benchmarking Group (BOLTS) met for the first time in person in Berlin, Germany, hosted by founding group member Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe (BVG). The Transport Strategy Centre facilitated the meeting with the four group members (Berlin BVG, Brussels STIB, Oslo Sporveien and Hong Kong MTR) across meeting and technical visit sessions on 1st and 2nd June 2023.
The main aims of the meeting were to progress the ongoing development of the BOLTS strategy, Key Performance Indicators framework and analysis, and work programme, as well as giving members the opportunity for structured discussion, insight into the topic of tram and light rail collisions, networking and technical visits to Lichtenberg depot and Operational Control Centre.
Thank you to BVG for hosting this first in-person meeting of many. BOLTS is actively growing its membership and will be meeting again in Hong Kong later in 2023. If your organisation wants further information about BOLTS or the TSC, please get in touch using the Contacts page.
