UITP and The American Public Transportation Association (APTA) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in order to strengthen their relationship and future cooperation.
In recognition of the common interests of public transportation industries in the United States of America, and internationally, both APTA and UITP will strive to work together on areas of mutual benefit to their memberships and, in so doing, maximise the quality and value of their member services in a variety of ways.
The agreement was signed in Nashville, Tennessee (25 September 2018) by APTA President and Chief Executive Officer Paul Skoutelas and UITP Secretary General Mohamed Mezghani.
UITP is delighted to announce the signing of this MoU with APTA at an important time for the association in North America.
The next edition of the UITP Metropolitan Railways Assembly will take place in conjunction with the thirdInternational Rail Forum for North America in Los Angeles (10-12 October 2018).
UITP will also be hosting the Taxi Platform Meeting and New Mobility Services Learning Visit to Silicon Valley in San Francisco (12 November 2018).
These activities are essential parts of UITP’s efforts to involve North America in the discussion on the future of public transit.
