Toulouse is located in the Midi-Pyrénées region in Southwest France. It is an industrial and economically-dynamic city, especially on the field of new technologies such as aircraft and space industries. It has a large historical centre, which poses some problems to mobility. The SMTC (Syndicat Mixte des Transports en Commun) is responsible for the organisation, exploitation and financing of public transport in Toulouse and its surrounding areas.
Given the scope of projects regarding public transport management and development at the local level, it was decided to create a unique name for all urban transport modes and all activities and competences of SMTC: TISSEO. By joining Polis, TISSEO-SMTC reaffirms its role as the driving force in the extended urban region to implement a rational management policy in mobility, as well as its role as promoter of discussion and exchanges with other European partners to take part in research and development programmes.
Toulouse (Tisséo) is involved in EU projects:
