DescriptionThe project will contribute to the development of policies and measures that will assist in a long-term modal shift from small inefficient vehicles to climate friendly, more efficient and less polluting, less carbon-intensive forms of transport in Mexico City Metropolitan Area (MCMA).
Implementation StatusProject implementation is satisfactory. The project provided a solid platform for an ongoing evolution of the transport sector of the city, with a focus on improving its long term sustainability, efficiency and environmental performance. The City issued its draft Climate Action Plan. It is the first major Latin America City to do so. The field test of alternative bus technologies is becoming the largest and most comprehensive initiative of this type, worldwide. Arrangements for the supply of the alternative fuels is now complete, with the support of Shell-PEMEX and ECOMEX. Tests included dynamometer measurements and on-board measurements. The test was inaugurated by the Mayor of Mexico on November 10, 2004. The first corridor will start construction early next year.
