Organising Urban Mobility Systems is a complex issue as it depends on the context. In the UITP Trends Report 2017, UITP looked at different cities all over the world to demonstrate the challenges to advise on a specific form of organisation regardless of cities specific circumstances. While there is a global awareness of the need to improve the structures and the processes that underpin the delivery of mobility infrastructures and services, the diversity of solutions and arrangement prevails at the local level. Still, there is some promising practices. One of them is the establishment of a Public Transport Authority (PTA).
This Policy Brief argues for the establishment of Public Transport Authorities (PTAs) in Africa and forward some principles to do so based on the Organising Authorities Committee (OAC) of UITP and SSATP experience.
