Fifty eight cities and regions around the world have come together to join the "All together for public transport growth" movement, sending a united call for greater investment in public transport to improve the world’s urban environments.
The International Association of Public Transport (UITP) encouraged its members in 92 countries to join the ‘"All Together for Public Transport Growth" movement and 58 city and regional public transport operators and authorities have responded to the call. To coincide with European Mobility Week, which runs Sept. 16-22, cities and regions across the globe will display the rallying slogan ‘Grow’ on and in public transport vehicles, stations, stops, websites and social media.
“The fact that 58 of some of the world’s most well-known cities and regions have come together across five continents and 28 countries to call for more and better public transport is really encouraging,” explained UITP Secretary General, Alain Flausch. “This just goes to show how widespread the movement for sustainable mobility is”.
A press conference will be held in Brussels on Sept. 18 during European Mobility Week to announce the final results.
