The UITP International Seminar on the Renewal of Public Transport Bus Fleets, hold in Skopje, Macedonia on the 17 September 2012 in collaboration with JSP Skopje (Avno Soobrakajno Pretprijate Skopje), offers all stakeholders in urban public bus transportation a unique opportunity to exchange knowledge, network and gain new business leads in a neutral and convivial environment.
About the topic
The success of Public Transport in many cities relies on a well-maintained bus fleet. Many cities in Central and Eastern Europe are in the process of planning and implementing new bus fleets to cater for the mobility needs of their citizens. Skopje is no exception to this with its ongoing renewal.
The seminar will bring together local, national and international speakers and delegates to discuss and debate the key issues relating to governmental, financial and technical aspects of the renewal process of bus fleets.
Why come to this seminar? Who should attend?
The UITP International Seminar on the Renewal of Public Transport Bus Fleets aims at:
Providing knowledge in the field of governmental, technical and financial issues concerning the renewal of bus fleets.
Providing a form for the exchange of best practices in the area of bus fleets renewal.
Exploring options, including different financing systems and governmental aspects related to the renewal of the bus fleets.
High level speakers from Central and Eastern Europe will explain participants the methodology as well as the challenges of the renewal of bus fleets by showing their examples.
We encourage a broad range of participants who are interested in public transport to attend in order to:
contribute to the development of best practice approaches and get up to date with the latest thinking and developments.
meet people from other organisations, states and countries to learn about what they are doing in the area of the rapid transit system development.
