International Association of Public Transport (UITP)

The International Association of Public Transport (UITP) is the only worldwide network to bring together all public transport stakeholders and all sustainable transport modes

In the European Union, the International Association of Public Transport (UITP) brings together more than 400 urban, suburban and regional public transport operators and authorities from all member states and interacts with the European institutions and other organisations.

It represents the perspective of short distance passenger transport services by all modes: bus, regional and suburban rail, metro, light rail and tram and waterborne.

These services are often organised in integrated public transport networks covering metropolitan areas and other specific territories.

UITP Objectives:

  • Create the framework for attractive and efficient public transport.
  • Achieve coherent public transport-friendly legislation, which is sustainable, affordable and practical in all aspects.
  • Improve voluntary technical harmonisation through European research, innovation and standardisation.
  • Double the public transport market share.
  • Create a level playing field with individual motorised transport modes.
