EU Position

Open Letter: Basic continuity and survival of urban public transport and local mobility services in the European Union

EU support is needed to support the public transport sector

While fighting this unusual crisis, ensuring the basic continuity and survival of the public transport and local mobility services is essential for Europe and all European citizens and especially for the many professionals depending on a well-functioning local transportation network to execute their essential daily functions.

Public transport and local mobility stakeholders have already put in place a set of preventive measures and are continuously sharing information and best practices in order to protect both staff and passengers and to keep transit systems running. However, for a broader outreach and to be more effective the support of Member States and of European institutions is needed.
