The TRANSfer project has developed exemplary project proposals from the Philippines and from Costa Rica. The projects aim to transform the transport sector in the countries mentioned by creating the conditions to accelarating the massive adoption of zero emission transport modes. The focus in Costa Rica is on achieving a substantial uptake of electric mobility in public transport, specifically on battery-electric buses, as a driving force to enable an electric mobility ecosystem nationwide. In the Philippines, the project proposal focused on the transformation of road-based public transport by modernizing the Jeepney fleet.
Summaries of the specific renewal programmes can be downloaded below.
The detailed project proposals with further information are available upon request from Friedel Sehlleier.
