Following the 2nd Florence Urban Transport Forum which focused on the experiences and challenges of tendering urban public transport, the Florence School of Regulation turns to the tendering of urban public transport systems as a whole.

The EC Regulation 1370/2007 leaves room for interpretation and allows the tendering of urban public transport systems as a whole. Tendering systems can bring advantages, it reduces the number of actors involved, it assigns clear responsibilities (if designed thoroughly), and gives operators the flexibility and incentive to improve the system. Nonetheless, it bears risks, competition and its advantages might be reduced, it could disproportionally favour big players, and authorities have fewer opportunities to learn and improve the tendering system.

This 3rd European Urban Transport Regulation Forum will discuss if tendering entire systems is a viable and desirable possibility for urban public transport. Does it really bring the benefits hoped for, such as innovation? Or is it an indirect way to protect incumbent operators or to favour big players? Participants will address among others following guiding questions:

  • What does praxis tell us on tendering entire transport systems?
  • What does the Regulation 1370/2007 mean for Tendering Urban Public Transport?
  • What are necessary factors for the successful tendering of systems?
