Examples of Real World NUMPs

This Tool offers a selection of several national approaches towards sustainable urban mobility from around the globe in order to provide good examples of past NUMPs. The selected case studies are:

1. Brazil: National Urban Mobility Policy & supportive law

National Policy for Sustainable Urban Mobility (2013): Supported by the Urban Mobility Law (2012), Brazil requires its cities with more than 20,000 inhabitants to develop a mobility master plan within three years to promote a broad integration of urban transport services. The mobility master plan is a prerequisite for large-scale urban mass transit infrastructure funding in large cities through the Ministry of Cities’ Growth Acceleration Programme for Mobility (maximum national funding share of 95%). The Brazilian Development Bank provides loans to local governments for bus funding (50% of total value to microenterprises and 30% to small or medium enterprises) through its Investment Maintenance Programme.

4. Mexico: National Support Program for Mass Transport (PROTRAM) & Evaluation Guidelines

To improve the efficiency of urban transport and to steer it towards a low-carbon development path, the Government of Mexico created the PROTRAM (Federal Support Program for Mass Transit). To date, PROTRAM has given financial support to 11 BRT systems and to 1 suburban rail system. Mexico does not have a National Policy defined in a government program. The legal framework establishes that states and – in few cases – municipalities are responsible for urban transportation. However, at the national level, PROTRAM is the funding program for mass transit developments. Funds for PROTRAM come from the National Fund for Infrastructure (FONADIN in Spanish), created to promote national infrastructure in several areas of development, including urban transport. PROTRAM finances costs for studies and total project investment.
