Workshop The contribution of public transport to the competitiveness of cities

12 october
10.30 to 12.00
Venue: 
S2

Description

[International Association of Public Transport (UITP)]

By directly contributing to the competitiveness of cities, public transport enables savings and creates value for individuals, businesses and public authorities, notably through higher tax revenues. Public transport also helps leverage private investment in the city. When public transport schemes are integrated into economic development strategies – urban development and housing policies, education and employment strategies, as well as the tourism sector – cities are able to truly flourish.
