As a passionate champion of sustainable urban mobility, International Association of Public Transport is internationally recognized for its work in advancing the development of this critical policy agenda. It is the only worldwide network that brings together everyone involved in public transport but also a whole range of sustainable transport modes from all over the world. UITP’s network extends to more than 1,400 companies, over 16,000 contacts from 96 countries. So whether a public transport authority or operator, a policy decision-maker, a research institute or a company providing public transport-related products or services, UITP brings all the key players needed to scale up public transport and climate action under one roof.
Launched at the UN Climate Summit, UITP confirms public transport’s climate leadership with the UITP Declaration on Climate Leadership and brings around 350 future commitments and actions from 110 public transport undertakings.
The initiative also aims to help bring about policies that will double the market share of public by 2025 and COP21 offers the unique opportunity to scale up public transport solutions worldwide and demonstrate implementation of some of the commitments pledged.
