Public Transport Benefits

Mobility for you, benefits for all

Public transport makes our cities, our lives and our planet better. Without it streets are congested, air turns grey with smog, and the economy slows down.

Besides walking and cycling, public transport is the most climate friendly and sustainable way to travel.

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.

We are continuously updating the public transport benefits toolbox with new statistics, visuals and animations! Keep an eye on this page or get in touch with UITP Content Communications Manager Patrick Regan to receive updates!

Your toolbox

To communicate to decision makers, the general public and any other stakeholder

The Benefits of Public Transport toolbox contains ready made (digital) media assets for marketing, communications and public relations purposes.

Each asset is ready to print. The open files are also included so you can translate the text into your local language if you wish. The open files also have space allocated for your own logo.

Please do not change any of the layout, graphics, logo’s or images apart from adding your own logo in the indicated spaces.

The toolbox contains several types of assets:

  • The animation in English, Chinese, Spanish and Turkish
  • Print materials
    • brochure
    • stickers
    • postcards
    • posters
    • roll up banners
    • swing cards
  • Ready made social media posts (coming 31 January)
  • Background for digital meetings
  • QR Code

Each asset folder has both the relevant ‘ready to use’ files (jpg, pdf, digital, print) and the open files that your designer can edit in the Adobe Suite.

People, Planet, Progress

Public transport benefits – key messages

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.
