UIC Hosts Training on Commuter and Regional Train Services

After two years of online activity, the UIC Passenger Department is eager and delighted to be holding the fifth Training on Commuter and Regional Train Services, in-person, at UIC HQ in Paris.


  • Offer an accurate and comprehensive overview of Commuter and Regional Train Systems all around the world and the latest challenges these services face after Covid-19 pandemic and the new passengers behavior.
  • Provide trainees with all the information needed to facilitate decision-making on the subject of Commuter and Regional Train Systems
  • Give a global vision of Commuter and Regional Train Services to experts on some particular elements on the system
  • Foster exchange of experience and information about the latest developments in this field


The training is targeted at :

  • Managers in decision-making positions in the transport sector in general and in the railways in particular
  • Ministries, local or regional authorities, advisory bodies or agencies
  • Universities or associations
  • The experience tells us that it is also very convenient for young employees in railway companies to start give them worldwide vision of the sector and creating their international network.


  • The course is targeted at people interested in acquiring a comprehensive overview of the commuter and regional train systems
  • Course participants do not need to have prior knowledge of any specific subject relating to commuter and regional train systems
  • Therefore, we wish to make attendance mandatory for ALL sessions. Every participant will receive a certificate.


Our speakers are experts in the subject area and principally work for the railways. They represent different countries, different regions of the world, and the main railway undertakings with experience in the field of commuter and regional train systems.

The programme on the first day, the 26th October, and the morning of the second day, the 27th October will focus on keynote speeches from experts on different issues such as planning, infrastructure, legal frameworks, digitalization, and customer experience on commuter and regional services.

The afternoon of the second day will be dedicated to a dynamic, design thinking workshop.

On the last day, the 28th October
 attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a workshop on “How to improve the rail’s attractiveness to the younger generation” in cooperation with universities and members of others UIC groups in the context of “the Cool Rail Project”. https://uic.org/events/the-cool-rail-project
