The International Association of Public Transport (UITP) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the International Union of Railways (UIC) to mutually benefit from the promotion of common interests. To achieve this, both organisations will attend each other’s events and workshops, share knowledge, exchange views and written communications on specific topics.
This new collaboration will offer both organisations opportunities to further develop new synergies, while finding new ways to improve rail transport in broader public transport policy frameworks. It will also aim at enriching each other’s activities linked to research and innovation and trainings.
“I welcome this important Memorandum of Understanding between UITP and UIC, which confirms that the sectors of urban public transport and railways are complementary. This partnership strengthens our commitment to defend and promote common interests between our associations, such as security, environment, digital transition and skill development. We are looking forward to collaborating on these topics and much more to advance sustainable mobility,” said Pere Calvet, UITP President.
