regulation and Policies


In a context of an enormous complexity, as is currently the case with transport systems, it is essential to ensure that transport policies implement the strategy that is intended and that the existing regulation is adequate to ensure a balanced defense of the interests of the different actors.


On the other hand, in a context in which the processes of procurement for public transport networks are being prepared, there is a great deal of regulation work to be carried out by the different national, regional and local Transport Authorities.

Policies, regulations, rules or standards promote and facilitate a culture of transparency, integration, promoting competitiveness and improving industry performance.
