Urban transport plays a major role in the organisation and management of land use. Therefore, an effective urban transport system is necessary for the daily activities of citizens and for the economic growth of cities. There is a need for planning, regulating, control and organisation of the public transport sector, illustrating the contribution that public transport makes to the affluence of cities.
The 3rd Congress brings the ‘second Johannesburg Declaration’ to the attention of African policy-makers and institutions, highlighting their significant roles in the implementation of excellent and effective public transport policies.
The event will showcase global public transport best practices, enabling key role-players, professionals and decision makers, from around the world, to exchange knowledge and skills within a single, neutral and hospitable environment.
