EMTA (European Metropolitan Transport Authorities) is an association of 34 public transport authorities across 21 European countries. Together, EMTA members work to improve the daily mobility solutions offered to more than 100 million Europeans. They are responsible for organising safe, smart, sustainable and healthy mobility options in their respective areas. EMTA serves as the voice of public transport authorities towards European policymakers and as a forum to exchange experience and best practices in planning, integrating and funding public transport services at the metropolitan level. 

EMTA is responsible for Work Package 4 of the deployEMDS project, which contains the overall deployment of the common European data space for mobility through real-life implementation projects in nine different cities and regions across Europe. To this end, EMTA coordinates the strategic alignment and collaboration process across work packages and the local implementation projects to ensure harmonised, pan-European development and deployment.
