Project Description
The overall development objective of the program is to improve the quality and sustainability of urban transport systems in Argentine Metropolitan Areas, through the improvement of sectoral decision making frameworks and by giving priority to public transport modes in the urban transport sector. The AF would be structured around one component; Component C: Public Transport Access and Modal Integration in the AMBA. The objective of this component is to improve current accessibility and integration conditions in the AMBA public transport networks. After the project's 2014 restructuring, this component was refocused to finance the La Matanza BRT and the multimodal Saenz Transfer Station.
