regulation and Policies


The existence of an adequate regulation is essential to ensure the balanced defence of the different players, mainly in the present context, in which new business models and disruptive mobility solutions have emerged.


The existence of clear policies, translated into regulations that define standard rules and parameters, promotes a culture of transparency, integration and increase in competitivity.


Thus, it is essential that the different Transport Authorities at international, national and regional levels are supported by the necessary regulatory tools.


TIS has actively played a role in defining and developing European and Portuguese regulatory frameworks, namely in what concerns the specifications of contractual relationships, quality of service and performance monitoring.
