Organising Authorities

About

A little background

Organising authorities shape the very culture of public transport by working closely with city leaders and policy makers to improve public transport on a much more local level. Such authorities hold a prominent position especially in cities without a department of transport (DOT) as they maintain a fine balance between economic, social and environmental sustainability. They support the needs of every day urban mobility, ensuring that decisions put residents first and only further enhance the quality of life in cities.

With their unique insight into the local market, they can really make a difference through implementing regulatory frameworks for new players, for instance to further complement traditional modes through combined mobility for seamless passenger experiences. They implement free fare public transport to ensure that economic growth brought on by public transport can truly benefit everyone. They provide innovative funding mechanisms such as land value capture (LVC) for network development.

What do we do?

UITP provides a unique environment for authorities, in the form of a dedicated Committee, to exchange and interact with other actors of the sector on issues of common interest such as public transport operations, integrated mobility plans and technological innovation.
