Course Description

Our course is delivered through a series of class-room style lectures and presentations, in additional to a series of facilitated working group sessions. Sessions are led by a combination of UITP Experts, International Subject Matter Experts who will bring international best practise to bear, and Local Subject Matter Experts who can discuss the intricacies of the local public transport frameworks.

The course covers a broad range of topics and issues that are designed to provide participants with a basic understanding of PT planning principles. The PT Fundamentals course does change from session to session based on local regional requirements, but our core course structure remains relatively constant and packs plenty of content into three days. There are:

  • 8 formal 90 minute modules
  • A local technical study tour
  • A local CEO keynote presentation
  • A group project that spans the three days

The 8 formal modules cover:

  1. Introduction to Public Transport Modes
  2. Policies for Sustainable Urban Mobility
  3. Local Public Transport and Planning Frameworks
  4. Public Transport Commercials – Funding, Revenue, Costs and Pricing
  5. Public Transport Industry Structures – Organisation, Regulation, and Contracting

  7. Technology and Systems in Public Transport
  8. Innovation and New Trends in Public Transport
