‘Grow with Public Transport’ Global Campaign Press Conference

The International Association of Public Transport (UITP) will hold a press conference on September 18, 2013 for the release of the final results of the ‘All together for public transport growth’ movement, part of the ongoing ‘Grow with Public Transport’ campaign. On the occasion of European Mobility Week (16-22 September), 73 cities, regions and industry members in 29 countries and on five continents, will issue a collective call for more and better public transport.

Participating cities and regions will display the message ‘Grow with Public Transport’ in metros, buses, trams, stations and stops to demonstrate to political decision makers and citizens alike the economic, environmental and social benefits of public transport. In the press conference, the participants will have the opportunity to learn more about the campaign from top-level speakers and to witness an exclusive showing of the final campaign film.
