A big welcome

New leadership for membership & global operations

As a member-led organisation, UITP is defined by those who call our association home. With more than 1900 members in over 100 countries, UITP takes great pride in showcasing to the world the achievements, successes, and developments of those working hard to ensure our cities, economies, and people keep moving.

When bringing together our global membership, we truly represent the entire public transport sector. Across 2023 our committees met in 18 countries around the globe. What’s more, UITP operates seven active training centres and 13 regional offices which help support members close to where they are. In 2024, our global operations will continue to grow under new leadership.

Starting this January 2024, UITP is proud to announce Jaspal Singh as the new Senior Director – Membership & Global Operations. Previously, Jaspal led the regional offices of both India and North America. Starting his UITP journey in 2013, Jaspal has spent over 16 years in the mobility and transport sector across multiple countries – making him the ideal person to advance public transport worldwide.

“It is with great pleasure that we welcome Jaspal Singh as our new Senior Director – Membership and Global Operations. Jaspal brings a wealth of experience to this role, having successfully completed a decade-long tenure with UITP. In his new capacity, Jaspal is poised to further expand UITP’s global presence and actively contribute to the UITP’s mission of supporting its members.”

Meet Jaspal Singh…

In his new UITP role

Jaspal first engaged with UITP in 2008, by filling in a UITP membership form as the Deputy Manager at Delhi Multi-Modal Transit System Limited (DIMTS). There, Jaspal launched a public-private partnership for buses and the first gross cost system in India.

In 2013, Jaspal formally joined UITP as a Consultant at the India Regional Office. In two short years, he became the Head of UITP India. Later, he managed UITP IT committees, where he stayed until becoming the Head of UITP North America in 2022. At both offices, Jaspal helped grow UITP’s reach and impact. Jaspal:

  • Organised the first UITP training programme on electric mobility in India in 2016 and in North America in 2019
  • Was a member of FAME e-bus subsidy programme committee formed by DHI, Government of India
  • Managed two IT committees and their working groups between 2018 and 2022, overseeing the release of 6 key publications
  • Established a New Jersey Regional Training Centre, alongside the UITP Academy Unit
  • Training in North America coached more than 176 executives in 2023 alone
“My roles as Head of Office on two different sides of the Earth have helped me to understand that UITP has a very important role to play to grow and support sustainable transport. In both positions, I came to understand that UITP needs to ‘Think Globally, Act Locally’ and identify the good practices from around the world which can be useful for members.”
