UITP – the world level public transportation agency

UITP_Logo.pnguitp-logo

If you travel on a bus or subway, you might see a small logo. There are several variants, but the four blue letters is the most widely used. It is the body that regulates public transportation worldwide. The official website is http://www.uitp.org/

The members

The full list of more than 1400 members is here: http://www.uitp.org/all-members and it is growing. Some countries who are fully developed have no UITP members, like the South Korea. The reigning champion is Germany, and I’m surprised that US is relegated  far behind. This is good news, too, for the potential member list could  increase significantly.

The events

There is an annual event called UITP Summit (https://uitpsummit.org/).

In 2017, the event will  take place in Montréal (https://uitpsummit.org/).

In 2015, the event took place in Milan (http://www.uitpmilan2015.org/)

In 2013, there has been a summit in Geneva (https://www.uitpgeneva2013.org/)

The  values

UITP has four core values: innovation, expertise, respect, and sharing.
