The Government of the Philippines through the national Department of Transportation (DOTr) and GIZ work together towards a more climate-friendly sustainable urban mobility system in the country.

GIZ supports the DOTr in its nationwide public transport reform, with focus on the jeepney sector (semi-informal minibus system). The jointly developed Jeepney+ NAMA aims to establish a high quality public transport system inducing ongoing fleet renewal of approx. 200,000 vehicles, a transition towards higher capacity buses, professionalization of the operations and improved service levels.

The NAMA initiates a transformational change of the entire public transport market in the Philippines by creating a supportive regulatory and financial framework unlocking private investments into low carbon public transport vehicles and operations, with up to 3.1 billion Euro of private investments.
