France: Responsabilities for PDU (Plans de Déplacements Urbains) development
The Urban Transport Authority (AOTU) responsible by law for the development and implementation of a PDU often seeks assistance from a variety of stakeholders, including urban development agencies, private consultancies, and regional transport research centres (CETEs).
France: Costs of PDU development
The costs of the development of a PDU differs widely and depends on the scope of the PDU, the availability of existing plans and studies, the nature of the envisaged PDU, and the external assistance required. In France, the authority generally spends between 200,000 and 400,000 EUR on the development of a PDU. These accounts, however, are not always complete and some hidden costs, or costs covered by external subsidies are not included in these figures.
