“POLIS network opens a window to the EU and beyond in terms of mobility and transport innovation. It allows us to expand knowledge, to enrich it and share it, becoming an incredibly useful tool for my home town Madrid. Besides that, it is always a pleasure to work with POLIS team; they are always available and their efficiency is beyond any doubt. They are more than colleagues, very good friends.”

Sergio Fernández Balaguer, EMT Madrid

“Being a Polis member is like being part of a great family: there’s always something going on, you progress much quicker than you would progress alone, and there’s always someone looking after you if you would tend to go astray.”


László Sándor Kerényi, BKK Budapest

“Polis is an asset for understanding the European transport arena. The professional team is always at your disposal and ready to help you in any situation. Polis’ asset is its ability to intervene both at the political and technical level.”
