To improve its services to members in Africa, UITP is changing the way it operates on the African continent. Previously the association’s activities and member relations were handled by the African Association of Public Transport (UATP) in partnership with UITP. Both associations have agreed that going forward, UITP will operate in Africa, interacting directly with local members, taking the lead in member development and retention, and managing all membership related administration.
With this development, African members of UITP benefit from improved access to UITP’s global network of public transport and urban mobility stakeholders. They will enjoy enhanced knowledge sharing, training opportunities, participation in events, and regular newsletters. This transition also allows UITP to better tailor its global efforts to this unique region.
UITP Africa’s dedicated services will foster stronger collaboration between UITP and the African Association of Urban Mobility Authorities, amplifying the collective efforts to drive sustainable urban mobility solutions across the continent. By actively engaging with local stakeholders and policymakers, UITP Africa will play a pivotal role in shaping the future of public transport and urban mobility in Africa.
