Mobility solutions provider Emovis is set to launch what it says is Ireland’s first-ever transport podcast, ‘Going Places’.
The podcast will focus on the issue of mobility and transport in Ireland, and will commence on November 27.
New episodes will air every three weeks and will be available on Emovis Ireland’s website, LinkedIn page and its YouTube channel. The podcast is hosted by Irish broadcaster Aidan Power, who has featured on RTÉ, Virgin Media One and the BBC.
The podcast will feature guests from key stakeholders and industry leaders in the area of transport and mobility, including senior representatives from Transport Infrastructure Ireland, ARUP and Smart Dublin.
Each video episode will see Power take to the road in a Toyota CHR Hybrid to interview a leading figure within the Irish transport and mobility ecosystem. All of the interviews will take place over the course of the car journey. Emovis adds that the goal of the podcast is to facilitate the sharing of information and advancing the national dialogue in Ireland regarding the future of transport and mobility across the island.
Darren O’Reilly, head of marketing and communications for Emovis in Ireland said: “This area [transport and mobility] is rapidly evolving, as technology allows us to travel in new, smarter and more integrated ways. There has never been a more important time to have these conversations, and as a world expert in mobility solutions, Emovis is proud to play any part it can in this.”
The first episode will feature Padraig Kenny a global road management and pricing leader and head of European digital services at ARUP. He will be speaking on the topic of mobility as a service.
Some of the challenges facing operators in the transport sector include providing adequate capacity, meeting changing customer expectations and dealing effectively with air pollution, emissions, noise and congestion in an efficient and equitable manner. Emovis will aim to tackle some of these challenges by bringing together key stakeholders in this podcast.
