We're delighted to have been elected the president of European transport organisation, Polis.

A network of 70 European cities and regions, Polis enables its members to work together to develop innovative policies and technical solutions to improve local transport. It also connects its members with key partners in sectors including government, business and academia.

TfGM was unanimously elected to take over the presidency from Rotterdam and we'll chair the network for the next two years.

We've been an active participant in Polis for several years, with a particular focus on air quality, freight, autonomous vehicles and bike-sharing schemes.

The appointment follows the election of TfGM’s Chief Executive Dr Jon Lamonte as the new President of European Metropolitan Transport Authorities (EMTA) last month.
