More than 80 CEOs and city representatives call for local public transport to be a key sector in the European recovery plan

During the past weeks, the huge benefit of public services became evident: transport companies have been providing an essential mobility offer to citizens and supporting the well-functioning of the State. Today, on behalf of all the public transport operators, authorities and supply chain industries represented by UITP, we call upon the European institutions to include the urban public transport sector amongst the strategic sectors that are included in the EU’s recovery plan and will benefit from European financial recovery measures.
