The 2nd Florence Urban Transport Forum aims at a thorough discussion of the question of tendering of urban public transport services within the context of EC regulation 1370 on PSO and contracting. The Forum will give the opportunity to relevant stakeholders to address this by discussing inter alia the following questions:
- What can we learn from the past experiences of tendering of urban public services? What has worked? What has not? And why?
- How does EC regulation 1370 affect the tendering procedures?
- What other challenges have emerged over the past 20 years that need to be taken into account when tendering urban public services?
- How is tendering of urban public services likely to evolve in the years to come?
What can we learn from other sectors about the tendering of urban public services?
Keeping to one of FSR’s guiding principles, namely stakeholder involvement, this Forum will feature presentations from representatives of the European Commission, Ministries, regulators, operators, international associations of stakeholders and academics.
