The Challenges for Public Transport in Metropolitan Regions

The File Note focuses on public transport in metropolitan regions, one of the core competences of Local and Regional Authorities (LRAs). It starts with analysing the role of LRAs in green public transport and integrated urban planning. Then, specific urban planning aspects are considered: spatial planning needs for alternative fuels infrastructure, linkages with intermediate and rural areas and the use of public space for mobility. Funding of public urban transport (PUT) as well as social aspects of mobility complement the analysis.
