Cities are fundamental in the fight against climate change. Urban transport accounts for around 40% of emissions from the entire transport sector, and that is why urban mobility lies at the heart of the fight against climate change and the transition to a resource efficient and low carbon urban economy.

Given that cities are fundamental in meeting sustainable development goals, public transport's role in driving low carbon, resilient growth must be at the forefront of any sustainable urban mobility policy.

Local public transport trends in the European Union

UITP is launching its first annual publication that tracks and analyses public transport demand trends in the EU Member States. This UITP statistics publication, the first in a coming series, provides detailed figures by country and the breakdown of journeys by public transport mode in urban and suburban areas. It’s the first comprehensive effort to gather and analyse local public transport ridership data by country in the whole of the EU.

Organisation and major players of short-distance public transport in the European Union

The report analyses the organisation of public transport in the EU in the light of the Member States’ gradual adaptation of the European Union’s Regulation 1370/2007 on the organisation of public passenger transport services.

For the countries covered, the publication also provides the number of passenger journeys undertaken by urban public transport, the length of infrastructure for metro and light rail, as well as the number of employees and the market structure for urban public transport at the national level.
