UITP has launched its shared mobility division. This division will offer professionals an opportunity to come together within UITP. The committees and working groups inside the division will work to advance knowledge on shared mobility and enable the exchange of ideas, best practices and experiences.
The Shared Mobility Division will come together for the first time in early 2024. Members will be able to meet their peers, discuss the most pressing issues they are facing and learn from each other. Crucially, the division will also discuss its priorities for the coming years, setting a direction for the sector.
Shared mobility for UITP includes- Shared vehicle services where users drive themselves to their destination; On-demand mobility services where others drive for you, such as demand-responsive transport, taxis, ride-hailing, and carpooling; and lastly combined mobility, when these work in tandem with traditional public transport modes.
