Long associated with a slow and uncomfortable manner to travel from point A to B, bus and rail travel have been mainstays for the student traveller covering a lot of ground with a limited budget.  Ground transportation has remained largely offline in terms of planning and ticketing until only recently, however, things are changing fast. Will generation Z get on board?

Low cost carriers helped to give rise to the ‘easyJet set’, so will digital innovation in the bus industry spawn a new revolution in affordable, convenient and environmentally-friendly travel among youth and student travellers?  This panel of leaders from some of the newest companies that are changing ground transportation will discuss the rapidly changing road for bus and rail travel, including improving levels of quality and service for the consumer and innovations in business models and distribution within the travel industry.
