  • Agenda set by terms of references

    Topic is Urban mobility and commuting, including taxis as part of the public mobility chain

    Meanwhile decision that Taxis will be in a separate report

    According to the ToR the following points should be covered:

    Collective passenger transport for growth, competiveness and social inclusion (vision);Users needs Legislative and administrative frameworks;Fiscal matters and user charging;Infrastructure and seamless intermodality;Easy access to services, information and new technologiesSafety and environment;City-related aspects;International dimension;Innovation and best practices

    Focus: Passenger, passenger, passenger

    Objectives: Social inclusionModal Shift Rise of qualityValue for public money

    Principles:Reasonably-governed, carefully regulated and adequately-resourced framework, based on efficiencyOnly promote practical, affordable, reasonable, efficient and sustainable solutions

CharbonnagesB-1080 BrusselsM.: +32-2-6636632F.: 0049-1212-666655626E.: jan.moellmann@epto.netCOLLECTIVE PASSENGER TRANSPORT FOR GROWTH (VISION);*Establishing public transport at the heart of European transport policy clear policy and business targets to double its use in the 10 years produce a shift in customers behaviour inclusive, efficient and sustainable mobility solution for all European citizens and visitorsat lowest cost for society

    Public transport must meet demand effectively and use resources efficientlyto achieve a high standard of public servicemaximising value from the expenditure on public transport by passengers and public authoritiesPublic transport is challenged by the current financial situation Innovative, new solutions and potentially a revised framework will be required to attract new private investment.

COLLECTIVE PASSENGER TRANSPORT FOR GROWTH (MEASURES)*Public transport is a locally planned and organised business, requiring little regulation by European legislation1370/2007, Concessions DirectiveEuropean support would be best directed at opening funding opportunities to:Encourage investment in public transport capital Promote modal shift (journey planning tools, ticketing initiatives such as reduced fares for young people etc),Facilitate best practice exchange, and Introduce regulatory and policy measures to ensure fiscal incentives that can be passed onto passengers in terms of lower fares (0% VAT, lower duties on fuel etc.)All EU actions should be promoting open, fair and non-discriminatory legal framework which encourages an entrepreneurial approach.

    Duality of Commercial PT Markets and PT PSO MarketsOperators know and will adapt to passenger needs

    PSO MarketsCompetent authorities at a local and regional level define the necessary and appropriate quality and quantity requirements for the passengersDecision on use of existing and available financial resources.European Passenger rights Yet to be in place for buses and coaches

    Selection of proposed actionsDevelop and support the sharing of best practice, aiming to develop local and urban policy metrics to achieve the best value for moneyPassenger rights - measure and analyse the benefits and costs

    Regulation 1370/2007 Clear and comprehensive framework for public transport contracts and compensation in placeInterpretative Guidelines on 1370/2007 are under preparationReview after 2014

    Selection of proposed actions Commence 1370 review activities early More support of market opening and competition in 1370 recastEncourage more private investment and initiative in the public transport sectorInnovative provision of passenger information and ticketing are welcomed, must be realistic, efficient and compatible with existing solutionsFair, reasonable and non discriminatory access to terminal infrastructure

    No EU/national/local policy or legislation in the field of taxation and user charges should increase burden on the public transport sectorAdditional costs will have to be borne by the tax payer and the passengerStrategy to internalise external costs generated by transport (on the principle of "polluter and user pays") is welcomed Income from the internalisation process should be re-invested in sustainable transport modesBuses and coaches as solution to the problem to be excluded from any proposals for additional charges such as road tolling or congestion charging. Acknowledgement of private sector investments in innovative public transport infrastructures by fiscal incentives

    Selection of proposed actions in the field of infrastructure and seamless intermodality

    Prioritise public transport and its associated infrastructure in all urban planning developmentsWhere passenger journey time benefits can be realised, support the building of dedicated infrastructure and separate (high occupancy) public transport lanes in urban areas, including by making increasingly use of modern ITS solutionsStudy on the shortcomings and barriers related to access of collective/public passenger transport by road to terminals/infrastructures Collective public transport key part in any future EU multimodal journey plannertaking into account and respect existing solutions;

    Multimodal information supply on access to other modes, safety, help and support services, with specific provision for customers with disabilities is welcomed

    Selection of proposed actions EC support for public transport operator initiatives and for development of agreed common standards and protocols for supply and exchange of passenger information.Any initiative at EU level must be customer-focused and demand led in the areas of ticketing and customer information EU research into the benefits from, and support for public private partnershipsDevelop EU-wide solutions enabling passengers to obtain travel information, whilst preserving and supporting existing locally developed solutions

    PrinciplesEncouragement and support for further technical development should be contributing to the aim to growth in the use of public transport.Requirements of new technical and environmental standards for different modes should be proportional to the benefits for each mode

    Selection of proposed actions Review CIVITAS initiatives and lessons learned from themPromote additional priority measures to remove buses Access to sustainable financial research support from EU funding (for example for the technical and economical development of bus vehicles) Development of sustainable funding mechanisms for public transport in cities
