International Leaders in Urban Transportation Council is a successor of Moscow Expert Transport Councils that took place in Moscow during last five years. It is also a brand new event aimed to highlight best public transport practices from all over the world and advocate for sustainable mobility.

Leaders in Urban Transportation Council is an international conference organized by the Department of Transport and Road Infrastructure Development of Moscow in partnership with the International Association of Public Transport. In 2020, the Event goes in conjunction with the UITP Metro Assembly, dedicated to the 85th anniversary of the Moscow Metro.

The Event will be held in Moscow May 14-16, 2020.

World transport leaders will gather in Moscow to explore new solutions to global challenges in urban transportation. The event’s goal is to extend cooperation with the international expert community on the urban transport development. It will help to share experience and keep complex problem-solving dialogue on how to improve urban mobility in the face of uncertainty and new global challenges.

Among the participants, there will be city mayors, ministers, CEOs of mobility operators, leaders of innovation implementing companies, international transportation experts and academic community that are leading the urban mobility research and development.

The Council will include plenary sessions, round tables and sessions to discuss the concepts of future urban development, or “Future Talks”, visits to Moscow's transport infrastructure facilities, as well as cultural events dedicated to the anniversary of the Moscow Metro.
