Public transport accessibility
UITP is the international association representing public transport stakeholders. In the EU, UITP brings together more than 400 urban, suburban and regional public transport operators and authorities from all member states and is a key partner for the European institutions and other bodies.
UITP and its members aim to make public transport infrastructure and services more accessible to “the world’s largest minority” and, more broadly, to all people with reduced mobility and with disabilities.
The UITP International Bus Conference will take place in conjunction with the Busworld Europe exhibition in Kortrijk, Belgium. These unrivalled major bus events will bring together bus operators, authorities, and industry experts from across the world. This will be an unmissable opportunity for you to learn and exchange best practices on day-to-day bus operations, compare trends and see the opportunities that new technology can bring to your organisation.
Join the UITP Combined Mobility Community for an interactive workshop day on Mobility as a Service (MaaS). MaaS or integrated mobility platforms are key to reduce car ownership as they provide registration, information, booking, payment, and ticketing/billing for the use of all available urban mobility services, but how can we get it right to offer an alternative to car ownership and guarantee freedom of mobility to our citizens?
