    The objective of the NAMA is to reduce emissions in the urban transport sector.

    Activities: (2016 - 2030)
    The NAMA aims to materialise GHG reduction potentials through:

    • utilisation of more efficient bus technologies
    • increase of bus occupancy rates
    • shift from private transport to public transport.

    The NAMA has 3 main components:

    • Low-carbon bus technologies, with the introduction of 200 hybrid and 50 plug-in hybrid buses by 2020
    • Operational efficiency improvements, with the introduction of fuel efficiency measures in bus fleets and bus route optimisation in 3 pilot cities, 25% and 50% of the potential of the national public transport fleet harnessed by 2025 and 2030, financial and technical assistance to bus operators and cities
    • Public transport system improvement by technical assistance for public transport planning, data and MRV/monitoring system for cities, integration of different modes of transport, and national policies that support cities
