The Center for Sustainable Transport and Health in the Andean Region (CTSS-Andino) and Peru’s Development Finance Corp. (COFIDE) defined a “Plan of Action” to overcome operational problems of Lima’s Metropolitano bus rapid transit (BRT) system.
The recommendations follow an intensive Value Assurance Review (VAR) of the system. Results were presented to the Mayor of Lima Susana Villarán, who agreed to allocate $20 million to deal with problems confronting the city’s BRT.
Recommendations are related to operations, production cycles and programming, technology platforms, institutional aspects, and economic and financial performance. Problems and corrective actions were identified by a team of international experts, overseen by EMBARQ Latin America Strategic Director Luis Gutierrez, and CTSS-Andino Director Jorge Jara.
The plan of action requires an integrated set of corrective actions to be implemented both in the short term, within the next five months, as well as in the longer term, by December 2011.
These activities are part of the agreement signed between CTSS-Andino and COFIDE on January 17 to execute an ambitious five-year program to support urban development and sustainable mobility in nine Peruvian cities.
