The event was co-organised by the International Union of Railways (UIC), the International Association of Public Transport (UITP), ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability, and UN-Habitat.
In the report, data from both UITP and UN-Habitat lay out the world’s progress towards SDG 11.2 and shares the lessons learned from the first years of work to reach that goal. It also provides a set of key recommendations to support implementation through improved monitoring and reporting.
“Public transport has to become an essential part of a green recovery”, said Philip Turner, Head of Sustainable Development at UITP. “If we continue to nurture public transport, it will draw people into cities and create a better, more sustainable environment and economy. Only with commitment from policy makers, industries and citizens, can public transport and its workers, continue to bring cities to life.”
