Practical Information

What You Need to Know


With a proud history spanning 135 years, The UITP Global Public Transport Summit is the world’s major platform for public transport professionals.

The next UITP Summit is coming to Melbourne, Australia from 6-9 June 2021, bringing together the greatest minds in mobility to champion a more sustainable future.

As we look ahead to the next edition of our Summit, UITP has been addressing the developments the public transport sector has faced during the coronavirus pandemic.

The world has experienced great change in 2020 as COVID-19 spread rapidly across the globe. The usual ways of living have been drastically altered and we have all had to adjust to our own new normal.

Our sector is recognisable by its strength of community and during this time, UITP has worked hard to keep the international public transport community connected in many different ways.

We’ve made it known that we recognise and thank all key sector workers as they strive to keep essential services running. We’ve also brought our members, and the external world, news, publications, webinars and more. You can find out more about our activities on our dedicated Public Transport and COVID-19 page.

Moving forward, we will continue to stay actively informed and engaged with the ongoing global developments during the coronavirus pandemic.

We will provide you with regular updates right here on our Summit website and the official Twitter feed.

As the situation in Australia and New Zealand continues to improve, and restrictions are eased regarding COVID-19, we remain available to answer your queries on becoming involved in the UITP Summit.

We hope to see you with us in Melbourne to seize the powerful opportunity to
connect with your customers and position yourself as leader of urban mobility.
