The overall objective of the NAMA is to establish a sustainable urban passenger transport system in Ulaanbaatar

Activities: (2017 - 2030)
The NAMA aims to achieve this by inducing a transformational change in the city towards low-carbon sustainable passenger transport by doubling the mode share of public transport compared to BAU, by reducing congestion and time lost in traffic and by increasing the city attractiveness.

The NAMA contributes by around 20% towards achieving the mitigation target of 14% lower GHG emissions compared to BAU as set out in the INDC of Mongolia. The four Mitigation Actions included under this NAMA are the following:

MA1: BRT system with 65km of bus-only lanes

MA2: Establishment of a metro of 18km

MA3: Retrofit of taxis to LPG

MA4: Low-carbon buses including hybrids and electric trolleybuses
