Find the data you need
UITP’s Information Centre is a one-stop shop for data and information. Thanks to MOBI+, our e-library available exclusively to members, you can have easy access to the full texts of UITP’s studies and conference papers, as well as references to books, articles and websites. A picture library and statistics on public transport operators are also available, and tailor-made targeted research can be provided to members on request.
Facts and figures at your fingertips
UITP gathers and analyses up-to-date facts and figures which support sound transport policies. We have developed a range of products to provide members with quantitative and qualitative information on key aspects of public transport and urban mobility, notably the Mobility in Cities Database (MCD).
