AML and TML received European transport authorities in a meeting considered a success

Around 50 participants gathered in Lisbon for the 47th general meeting of EMTA(European Metropolitan Transport Authorities), from May 4 to 6, in an event considered a "great success" by the organization and the participants.

Issues such as green mobility, the trans-European transport system, intelligent transport services, rail transport, European transport policies, communication infrastructures, investment and financing systems and the impact of Covid-19 on the transport system were some of the topics discussed at the meeting, which took place at the premises of the Lisbon Metropolitan Area, where TML - Transportes Metropolitanos de Lisboa is also based.

At the end of the meeting, the metropolitan first secretary, Carlos Humberto de Carvalho, thanked EMTA for choosing Lisbon to hold the meeting, expressing the "interest and willingness of AML and TML to continue cooperating with the organization whenever necessary, because the ability to join forces and continuous learning leads us to tread new paths in the field of mobility, always with the citizen at the heart of our concerns".

"Boldness, ambition, learning and the coming together of wills are key ideas that systematize the moment that is being experienced in the Lisbon metropolitan area in the field of mobility," said Carlos Humberto de Carvalho

During the work, EMTA presented official position statements on urban mobility, air quality and decarbonization related to public transport.
