Developing Urban Rail Transport

27 April - 28 April 2017

The Maltese Presidency of the Council of the European Union with the support of UNIFE, UITP, EUROCITIES and POLIS will organise a European seminar on:
- Developing urban rail transport
- Environmental performances and financing solutions

This event will take place in Malta on 27 April (afternoon) and 28 April 2017 (morning) and will bring together representatives of local Governments, urban operators and rail equipment suppliers from all over Europe.

At a time where European urban areas are engaged in fighting against congestion and pollution, this event will be a unique opportunity to learn about best practices in Europe when it comes to:
- Developing an urban rail system (tram/metro) and integrating it in a multimodal public transport system
- Finding the way to finance the development of such an urban rail system (cf. EU grants, EFSI, EIB, etc.)

The draft agenda of the event is now available here.
