Following previous discussion events on rail transport, we are starting our activities on urban transport by organizing a debate on the role, the function and the status of Transport Authorities.

The discussion will be kicked-off with the following points:

  • Who should perform the functions of planning, procuring and delivering urban transport in order to obtain the best possible results?
  • What are/should be the exact role and functions of urban transport authorities, also in light of broader agglomerations’ transport?
  • What is/should be the nature of contracts? Who is the regulator?
  • What should be the relationship between transport authorities and political authorities?

Keeping to one of FSR’s guiding principles, namely stakeholder involvement, this Forum will feature presentations from transport authorities, operators, international associations of stakeholders and academics. The day will be opened, closed, and moderated by Prof Matthias Finger with the aim of fostering open discussion and exchange among all participants.

For more information, please contact FSR.Transport@eui.eu or visit the urban transport dedicated webpage.
