The UITP working structure reflects the diversity and expertise of UITP’s membership base, taking into account the different modes of public transport, the diverse public transport stakeholders, the member companies’ business areas as well as their geographical locations.
UITP is organised into regional, modal and sectoral Divisions, each containing one or more Committees.
Depending on their field of activity and region of origin, members belong to one or more Divisions, which deal with specific public transport modes or sectors. In addition, general topics are addressed by UITP's Commissions.
Committees and Commissions compile and develop global knowledge for the whole community of members.

Centres for Transport Excellence
UITP is a global association with 1,500 member companies in 96 countries and the consolidation of the regional services has been one of its main development objectives in recent years. The work has included the creation of the Centres for Transport Excellence (CTEs) in the Asia Pacific and MENA Regions.
The objectives of the CTEs are to share knowledge, conduct research and perform training to support the development of efficient public transport policies and solutions. The CTEs aim to promote sustainable mobility systems as a way of improving the standard of living in a specific region.
