UITP welcomes the Commission’s ‘Fit for 55’ package as a key set of measures for achieving the goals of the European Green Deal and reaching the 2030 climate target. Cities will be at the forefront of delivering on the EU increased ambition to achieve net neutrality, and public transport is a crucial enabler of economic prosperity and sustainability. To enable the transition to zero emission land transport in a fast, affordable, and fair way, the priority must be to provide people with more and better public transport.
In its new position paper, UITP presents its main messages on the package and on six individual initiatives that will affect the public transport sector: the AFI Regulation, the Energy Taxation Directive, the EU Emissions Trading Scheme, the Social Climate Fund, the Renewable Energy Directive as well as the Energy Efficiency Directive.
