This UITP Policy Paper is a tool to support all transport professionals and decision-makers engaged in shaping the post-pandemic mobility landscape.

The Paper offers key priorities and recommendations on EU funds and financing. Also, it zeros in on all major EU funding and financing streams, helping stakeholders understand the EU financing architecture for sustainable and smart local mobility.

The COVID19 pandemic has demonstrated that passenger transport is an essential and common good we all have to preserve. Hit by a double meltdown of revenues and ridership, local public transport is in dire need of sound and sufficient funding streams. It will not only guarantee a continuous and efficient mobility offer, but also help mass transit emerge even greener in the post-pandemic landscape.

With weakened local budgets and growing national debts, the critical role of EU funds and financing is undeniable. EU support remains vital in addressing the public transport sector’s sustainability and digitalisation challenges, while at the same time meeting growing passenger expectations and demand.
