Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

The objective is to support the Ministry of Transportation and Public Works (MTOP) in improving the regulation of the metropolitan passenger transportation system, in order to achieve operational efficiency, economic sustainability, equity of access and mitigation of the effects of climate change. Specifically, the aim will be to improve the information available to the regulator regarding the supply and demand of services, efficiency in the design of lines and frequencies, and efficiency in the management of provider companies. Based on the diagnosis generated with the information gathered, we will seek to generate alternatives for change in the design of lines and frequencies, bus technology, charging systems, and remuneration criteria for operators, in pursuit of the aforementioned policy objectives. Finally, we will seek to improve the permanent information gathering systems that will allow the regulator to reduce the asymmetry of information with the operators and improve its capacity to induce an efficient operation of the regulated market.
