“This training provides the opportunity for participants to get a broad knowledge on up-to-date practices in public transport contracting and relationship between authority and operator. The way the training is organised allows them to challenge their thinking on the way to organise public transport services. Legal and abstract issues are mixed with numerous real-world examples, making a bridge between theory and practice. Participants learn from the trainers but also from discussing with each other and it is always a great pleasure to see those animated discussions appear between participants.”
