In the interest of reaching the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), in particular goal 11, UITP has published a new Policy Brief. This Policy Brief demonstrates that public transport is an instrument in revitalising, regenerating and supporting growth in deprived areas.
The brief, ‘Public transport as an instrument for urban regeneration’, summarises that public transport is an essential instrument for urban regeneration as part of a city’s strategy. Urban regeneration means closing the gap between the wealthiest and poorest populations by improving the physical infrastructure of a deprived pace and increasing access to a city’s life opportunities to tackle social exclusion and support the local economy.
