The topic

In 2020, a sharp drop in patronage has led to a drastic reduction of revenue of around 70-90% with serious implication to the transport sector. Throughout 2020 and 2021 the public transport sector continued supporting cities and their citizens, creating  serious repercussions to companies business models and, in some cases, to public finances or companies financial health.

The future of urban mobility has been questioned by the impact of Covid-19, where revenues were harmed, financial capabilities diminished and appetite for mobility changed. Thereby raising questions on the type of projects, overall structuring of such projects and investment instruments.


This webinar will provide some insights on the ongoing trends and impacts affecting the development of infrastructure projects and their financing  This webinar will address the following questions:

  • Overview of the conception of projects (conception, appraisal, timeline, phasing, etc)
  • The financing sustainability and value for money for the project,
  • Snapshot of stakeholders and governance structures impacting the projects (eg. financing, construction, operators, etc) and including decision-making and stakeholder relationship
  • Risk allocations and mitigation

This webinar is part of a series of session on funding and financing organised by the Transport Economics Committee and the Organising Authorities Committee. This is the third edition and we hope to address and stimulate the debate on the issues pertaining to financial sustainability of our sector and reflect on how companies and cities are gearing up towards the future of mobility.
