The public transport operators represented by UITP are convinced that well-trained staff and
customer-focused operations are essential to providing the kind of quality of service needed for
public transport systems to offer a reliable and attractive mobility choice.
UITP therefore welcomes the proposal of the EU Commission and in particular:
- the integration of road safety related subjects in the periodic training,
- the focus on fuel efficient driving (eco-training),
- the inclusion of disability awareness in the list of training subjects and
- the possibility to use ICT tools such as e-learning for the training.
Nevertheless, it is crucial for the sector to allow the training centres flexible handling of the subjects. In addition, a specific content retake of training modules should be possible.
