HIE-RO about to deliver an Indicator-based self-evaluation tool in Excel for public transport planners
By Marco Mazouzi
Within the task 4.2 “Implementing a multi-stakeholder planning model for public transport services “ HIE-RO is about to deliver an Indicator-based self-evaluation tool in Excel for public transport planners. This tool will assess the current public transport performance based upon selected key transport indicators, by monitoring the indicator performance over time as well as by comparing the city with other cities and regions. The tool will also indicate the strengths and weaknesses of the transport system of the city, thereby helping decision makers to identify fields of intervention in the public transport domain.
"Public transport is vital to keep cities alive & for the European economy"
UITP Europe together with more than 80 CEOs and city representatives called the European Union institutions to include the urban public transport sector in the EU's COVID19 recovery plan.
