European rail group, APTA sign agreement to reinforce ties

Posted on November 6, 2013

The European Rail Industry Association (UNIFE) and the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to reinforce ties between the European and American rail sectors.

The MoU was signed by Philippe Citroën, director general of UNIFE, and Michael Melaniphy, president/CEO of APTA, at a reception hosted by the European Union Delegation to the U.S. in Washington, D.C.

The agreement outlines a framework for cooperation and information exchange between the two associations. The signing of this MoU will be followed by meetings throughout the week between APTA, UNIFE and their members on a number of topics.

“APTA is delighted to work closely with UNIFE, and we look forward to close cooperation and collaboration as both organizations work to advance rail transportation,” said Michael Melaniphy. “The European and United States rail sectors have much to learn from each other. This Memorandum of Understanding facilitates the sharing of best practices and the robust exchange of information in technical and policy areas.”
