The main competence in transport of the German region of Stuttgart - which brings together Stuttgart city and some surrounding rural municipalities – is regional railway services management.
As a regional member of Polis, Stuttgart is particularly interested in various experiences on delegated transport services management. Air quality problems faced by Stuttgart are similar to those experienced by other regions in the network and thus some exchange of experience would be of particular interest.
Stuttgart’s interest in Polis is primarily in the “environment and health” and “traffic efficiency and mobility” thematic pillars of the network. The experience of the region in the 2006 FIFA World Cup could provide interesting insights to other members, and Stuttgart would also like to engage in partnerships with other members in activities dealing with safety.
Stuttgart is involved in EU projects:
Mediate, Conduits, CO-EXIST and EBSF2.
