APTA President and CEO Paul Skoutelas and UITP Secretary General Mohamed Mezghani signed the agreement in Nashville at the APTA Annual Meeting on Sept. 25.
UITP and APTA said they “will work together, where possible, to organize joint events on topics of common interest to the benefit of our respective and common members. The associations will also work towards the organization of Joint Training Programs by identifying topics of training and other educational programs of interest to the U.S. public transport sector.
“I am exceptionally pleased to reconfirm our commitment to collaboration between APTA and UITP,” said Skoutelas. “We have identified many areas for concrete exchange of best practices and know-how from electrification to addressing the evolving mobility environment. I look forward to developing shared activities that will be valuable to the U.S. and international transit community.”
“I am delighted to sign this new Memorandum of Understanding between UITP and APTA,” said Mezghani. “The agreement will strengthen the bond between our two member-led associations, further highlighting not only APTA’s vastly important presence in American urban life, but also UITP’s global reach. I look forward to developing shared aims.”
The next edition of the UITP Metropolitan Railways Assembly will take place in conjunction with the third International Rail Forum for North America in Los Angeles (October 2018).
