Organizations and governments in various countries have launched and successfully implemented programs to modernize public transport and to transform the road sector of public transport. Here we present results and lessons learnt from selected GIZ projects in the Philippines and in Mexico City. The next chapter includes additional specific case studies from Europe.
The Public Utility Vehicle Modernization (PUVM) Program of the Philippines aims to transform the road sector of public transport through the introduction of safer and climate-friendly vehicles, improved regulation, and industry consolidation. The program aims to improve the urban quality of life, reduce economic losses due to time lost in travel, reduce health costs and premature deaths, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve the economic situation of the operators and industry by improving service quality levels.

The report explores how data on the buses’ financial costs, environmental impacts and on existing infrastructure on the route led to the choice of trolleybuses as the best solution for the Eje 8 Sur route.
