EU Position

Joint Letter - Public transport during and after COVID-19

  • Modal shift

UITP, CEEP, CER, UITP and Eurocities join forces to underline the health and safety of using all modes of public transportation during and after COVID-19 and call for strategic action that supports this public good for a resilient and green future for cities.

There is enough evidence to demonstrate that, when measures recommended by the health authorities are implemented, the risk of infection with COVID-19 in public transport is very low.

Public transport is fundamental to achieving sustainable urban mobility, building resilient cities, combating climate change, and boosting local economies leaving no one and no place behind.

We therefore urge the Commission to recognise and strengthen public transport as the backbone of sustainable mobility and to foster modal shift in its upcoming Smart and Sustainable Mobility Strategy.
