- Press release
The International Association of Public Transport (UITP), the Community of European Railway and Infrastructure Companies (CER), the European Metropolitan Transport Authorities (EMTA) and European Passenger Transport Operators (EPTO) today announced their concerns with the so-called state aids Block Exemption Regulations. The proposal includes a change to the public service obligations (PSO) regulation for land passenger transport which induces legal uncertainty. UITP, CER, EMTA and EPTO now call upon the European Parliament and the European Council to take action to withdraw the PSO part of this proposal in order to preserve the special needs of the land transport sector.
