ASSTRA is the Italian association of local and regional Public Transport companies. Our Members are urban, suburban and regional transport operators, running services on bus, tramway, trolleybus, subway, metropolitan railway, local railways (except those owned by Trenitalia S.p.A.) and waterborne transport.
The Association represents the needs of public transport operators and defends their interests in front of Institutions, at national and European level. It subscribes the National Collective Labour Agreement for the sector and participates actively in all relevant policy making processes. ASSTRA promotes local public transport as the way to sustainability, fostering awareness on its environmental, social and economic values. To this end, the Association acts in order to be a recognized platform for knowledge sharing and business networking. ASSTRA carries out its activities and tasks also through working groups, composed of representatives from public transport companies. In particular, with the working group on “Energy Efficiency”, ASSTRA promotes the strengthening of the Mobility Manager and the Energy Manager within the local public transport sector by organizing together with the Ministry for the Environment, the Ministry for the Economic Development, the Ministry for Transport and Infrastructures, ENEA and FIRE (Italian Federation for the Rational use of Energy), thematic congresses and workshops to sustain energy efficiency and the development of flexible systems, such as car-sharing, supporting public transport policies.
