Stockholm: the Host City
Every two years, UITP chooses a new setting for the Global Public Transport Summit. The next edition will take place on 9-12 June 2019 in Stockholm, Sweden, due to the city’s recent achievements in public transport.
Stockholm is the city where public transport is a form of art. It is believed that there is a genuine craft in using public transport to unite city districts and the archipelago, create a better environment and dynamic growth, and improve people’s quality of life.
The entire Stockholm region is connected by an efficient public transport system, whether above ground or below, on land or on the water. Almost 800 000 Stockholmers use the ever-growing transport network every day, and the percentage of people travelling on public transport vs those travelling by car has increased since the turn of the century, with 49% of all journeys within the county now made by public transport.
