ETF believes that mobility is a citizen’s right which must be guaranteed by access to inclusive and affordable public transport. What is more, affordable quality public transport is the absolute best way for transport to contribute to the fight against climate change, congestions and air/noise pollution. Public transport thus contributes to the health and wellbeing and of European citizens. For the ETF quality public transport services for citizens and good working conditions for public transport workers go hand in hand. One is not possible without the other.
The priorities of the ETF Urban Public Transport (UPT) Committee are:

We push for meaningful social dialogue in UPT, addressing common issues like training and qualifications, health and safety, aggression in public transport, women’s employment, technological developments, and sustainable urban mobility.
