UITP picks London transit chief as new president

Posted on May 28, 2013

Sir Peter Hendy will take over as president of the International Association of Public Transport (UITP), replacing Ousmane Thiam, the first African president of the association.

Since becoming Commissioner of Transport for London (TfL) six years ago, Sir Hendy has made London a world leader in integrated and innovative transport delivery, overseeing record breaking operational performance, passenger numbers and the largest ever investment program.

He led, and played a key role in preparing for the successful operation of London’s transport for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. In 2013, Sir Hendy received a knighthood in recognition of his inspiring leadership as Commissioner of TfL.

“It is a real privilege to take up the presidency of UITP’s worldwide community of public transport professionals” said Sir Hendy. “TfL is at the cutting edge of transportation and a leader in innovation of world transport. The UITP is vital in sharing knowledge and expertise with world cities and we will be working together to make the case globally that investment in transport delivers growth and jobs.”
