Covid-19 and the future of public transport

The ITF's latest special podcast about the Covid-19 pandemic has heard about the key role being played by public transport workers.

In the show, Mohamed Mezghani, secretary general of the UITP (the international organisation for public transport authorities and operators), says: "Public transport workers are keeping cities alive in this very challenging period. They are serving those who serve, the people who are working in hospitals, care and other critical services."

In the interview with ITF urban transport director Alana Dave, Mr Mezghani says the experience of the Covid-19 crisis must shape how public transport is treated in the future: "The workers in public transport already knew how critical it was to everyone, now we can all see that. The system needs financial support and must be funded properly in the future."
