What we do


MOBILISE investments to build, modernise and augment sustainable urban mobility infrastructure. Germany is committed to invest significant funds in sustainable urban transport systems in developing countries and emerging economies. Eligible concepts for financing must be jointly developed and be imbedded in the overall urban planning of the respective city and national institutions. Investments target replicable, innovative approaches as well as reliable, existing technologies.

TUMI has been financially cooperating and supporting various projects worldwide. In India, a new integrated metro system will contribute to Vijayawada’s Comprehensive Mobility Plan (CMP). The city is currently planning a Light Rail Line, which will be the first of its kind in India. A corresponding BMZ funded study will support the city’s planning.

In Latin America, the expansion and sustainable use of energy-efficient public transport such as BRT systems, trams, metros, and cableways in the member states of the CAF in Latin America is promoted. Three projects are planned for the upcoming year: Metro Line 1 in Quito (Ecuador), expansion of the light rail network in Buenos Aires (Argentina) and a BRT system in Niteroi (Brazil). Access to mobility is created primarily with the poorer urban population in mind. With the construction of the metro in Quito, more than 23,000 passengers per hour can be transported, contributing to a considerable improvement in job availability and the avoidance of 65,000 tons of greenhouse gases.
