People’s Public Transport Policy Demands

Report Published 11 Oct 2021

The ITF has developed these demands from three sources: existing ITF policies and statements; recent developments and experiences in the urban transport sector; and external contributions from organisations and activists. The chapters of the People’s Public Transport Policy developed by these organisations represent the views of their contributing authors and are not necessarily consistent with those of the ITF and its affiliates. Each chapter includes case studies, as well as supporting campaign materials and education resources.
