Low-carbon mobility: making modal shift desirable

JPEG - 79.4 kb

UIC actively promotes at the international level a multimodal vision shared with public transport and supply chain stakeholders.

Based on its members’ expertise, the UIC is developing the technical enablers to transform this concept into reality. In order to share the initiatives already taken and to find ways to make modal shift desirable, the UIC is pleased to invite you to a one-day conference on 13 February 2020 in Brussels. It will also be an occasion to rediscover an unexpected advantage inherent to rail, the virtue of frugality.
