Objective and overall priorities
The aim of the CTP is to define and attain the IRU transport policy objectives laid down in Article 2 of the IRU Constitution, with a view to promoting and developing road passenger transport nationally and internationally and safeguarding the industry’s vested interests.
In the context of the above general objectives, the CTP's overall priorities are to:
- contribute to the facilitation and security of passenger transport by bus, coach and taxi, by eliminating barriers and difficulties hindering the progress of the industry, as well as to oppose any discriminatory measures against these modes of transport;
- promote the economic, social and environmental objectives of sustainable development in the passenger transport sector; and
- work together with the United Nations to ensure that road transport is recognised as a key enabler in driving the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) forward.
