Some thoughts

Who should implement and support the urban transport policy?

What is a « good » Urban Transport Authority?

What are the lines of work to propose to Mediterranean cities (elected people or technicians) who want to create or develop their Urban Transport Authority?

What are the important questions to ask (institutions, territory, skills, decision-making levels ...)?

What are the possible answers and the conditions of their implementation and success?

3 key-questions

Testimonial : Mohamed MEZGHANI (Adviser to the UITP)

3 key-questions: 1. What should be the institutional and regulatory framework of urban transportation best able to accompany (and anticipate) the evolution of urban mobility? (National vs Local, regulation vs deregulation, public management vs liberalization)? 2. What should be the responsibilities of the organizing authority: transport modes, planning, integration, interface with other public institutions? 3. What should be the structure of the organizing authority? What means and resources?
