The objective of the NAMA is to improve the conventional bus system in the valley of Mexico. The actions reviewed as a NAMA in this feasibility study were the: establishment of an appropriate institutional and regulatory framework, the implementation of changes in the bus system (such as the reorganisation of routes and concession management), public awareness raising and outreach, and the implementation of a transport monitoring system.

The poor quality of public transport has contributed to high levels of car ownership and use and so this activity, which is also aligned with national climate change strategy, has the potential to have a significant impact on public transport services and modal share in the valley of Mexico, and more widely if replicated.

There is no information available about the financial ambition or the implementing entity.
