UITP launches global public transport benefits toolbox

Show the benefits of public transport with the new UITP toolbox

Public transport makes our cities, our lives and our planet better. Besides walking and cycling, public transport is the most climate friendly and sustainable way to travel, while stimulating the economy and making our roads safer.

As public transport and combined mobility professionals we are proud of our contribution to the world. And the new ‘public transport benefits toolbox’ helps the entire sector, from individuals to companies, show its added value.

The ‘Public Transport Benefits Toolbox’ contains brochures, posters, visuals and much more, to help you communicate this message to the public, policy makers and other stakeholders.

People, Planet, Progress

Public transport is one of the most sustainable and safest modes of transport. It brings benefits to all of society; improving the lives of people, guaranteeing a healthy planet, and stimulating technological, economic and societal progress.

Public transport and combined mobility improve social cohesion, guarantee financial and physical accessibility, and fight climate change. The sector contributes to the economic development of regions and cities, creates employment and connects places and people.

Across the world, cities are increasing their investments in public transport, walking and cycling. After decades of policies promoting private car use, they are giving cities back to people and making the sustainable choice.

The 12 benefits of public transport are divided into three categories: people, progress and planet.

and join public transport advocates from across the globe

The public transport benefits toolbox was originally launched by the UITP Europe division. They featured the assets during the EU Mobility Week and launched a pop-up stand at the Schuman station right at the heart of the EU.

The response to this original toolbox was so great that UITP decided to expand the toolbox to a global scale, using statistics from all parts of the world and expanding on the examples.

We are continuously updating the public transport benefits toolbox with new statistics, visuals and animations! Keep an eye on the dedicated page or get in touch with UITP’s content communications manager Patrick Regan to receive updates or suggest new assets.
