- Press release
UITP (the International Association of Public Transport) has announced the creation of the International Urban Rail Platform for North America, which will bring together key rail industry players from the region and the rest of the world. Leaders from the some of the most important urban rail networks in North America gathered last night in Washington to kick off preparations to establish an International Urban Rail Platform for North America. This initiative aims to bring the North American rail scene into closer contact with UITP’s worldwide membership, to share knowledge and expertise and further advance the North American ‘rail renaissance’ currently underway, which has seen 23 new light rail systems in the USA since 1985, alongside the existing 36 LRT and 16 metro systems.
