Urban mobility is changing. And with a new reality defining the way people move around our cities, a central question has emerged: What do we want the future of public transport to look like?
With that question in mind, UITP is delighted to present the launch of “The Way We Move: Transporting Stories”, a brand-new, member-led series, produced for us by BBC StoryWorks Commercial Productions.
Our sector is full of renewed ambition – determined to promote a more inclusive, greener and connected future for urban mobility all over the world.
So how do you show the world what is happening across the globe in public transport? How do we best tell the stories of the people who use public transport every day…The people who move us every day?
Communication matters, and telling stories can make a difference.
There’s no better way to present what public transport can do, should do, and will do, than in a series of beautifully crafted, visually arresting mini-documentaries, shown globally on a brand-new BBC.com microsite.
21 UITP members telling their own transport stories
Five editorial pillars to define the output
Visiting 18 beautiful global cities
22 mini-documentaries, including UITP’s ‘Love Letter to the sector’.
Centred on the people who make public transport what it is, it showcases the meaningful roles it plays in daily life as a champion of safety, access, and inclusion for passengers regardless of age, gender, disability, or race.
The importance of this new series cannot be underestimated. The global reach, the important topics and the vital stories being told will bring the world of public transport to new audiences, and a whole new level.
The way we move is changing. Transport yourselves in our stories to see the people who make public transport what is. Be moved by the people who move us, and are moved by our sector. A sector defined by its strength of community and it’s the people who make our sector what it is.
Our Freedom. Our Lives. Our Public Transport.
For our member Voi, they are telling their story on the way we move by the power of the written word. Our new series is both a beautifully visual collection of documentaries, and also one that showcases how public transport is advancing by wonderfully written content.
