UITP, POLIS and EMTA issued a joint opinion on EU-wide integrated ticketing. The joint paper presents key recommendations to lead the digital transition of the public transport sector.
As Europe’s transport sector pursues the sustainability objectives outlined in the European Commission’s Green Deal, the digital integration of transport modes enabled by the Mobility as a Service (MaaS) concept can support this.
While UITP, POLIS and EMTA welcome such innovation, the organisations call for a central role for public authorities in the governance of the MaaS ecosystem.
This will ensure that digital solutions support, rather than undermine the key role of public transport as backbone of urban mobility – and the rights of all citizens to affordable and accessible transport services are not diluted.
