UITP has recently aligned its Sustainability Charter to the new global sustainable development agenda that was agreed last month in New York by national governments. With the United Nations launching a ground-breaking set of global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the public transport sector has a newly relevant framework to guide their strategic priorities and efforts towards society – representing a huge opportunity to drive sustainable business practices within the sector.

Cities are going towards more efficient public transport: inter-city travel and transport is being improved and new modes of urban movement are being introduced. The ultimate goal is sustainable mobility in urban areas, in which citizens are offered more efficient travel options, the use of resources is rational and the CO2 emission reduced.

Light Rail for Liveable Cities

In countries where tramways had survived the massive closures of the 50’s and 60’s, e.g. Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, many remaining systems have been modernised and upgraded and may now be called “light rail systems”. In many other countries, where tramways had disappeared from the streets, completely new systems have been developed since the mid-70’s. This was the case in North America, in the Asia-Pacific area and in a few European countries such as the United Kingdom and France.
