The SPUTNIC project aimed at supporting knowledge and experience transfer towards the New Member States and Candidate Countries by compiling existing knowledge and best practices.
Practical tools were collected and developed to support the public transport stakeholders in four thematic areas: Market Organisation (financing/investment principles and priorities, revenue distribution system, incentives in contracts), Customer Relations (the image of public transport, marketing and customer satisfaction), Equipment and Operational Aspects (infrastructure , rolling stock and related equipment, operational and fleet management) and Corporate Management (human resource development, business organisation and planning including cost management).
