Objective:

The Colombian NAMA supports the transformation of urban development in Colombia by demonstrating how transit-oriented urban development can reduce the growth in car traffic by 25–36% and simultaneously improve air quality.

TOD focuses public and private development around transit stations to create neighbourhoods where people can safely walk, live, work, shop and play.

Activities:
TOD will enhance the benefits of national investments in public transit – increasing ridership and financial sustainability – and leverage substantial funding for low-income housing.

The core of the NAMA is an independent Center for the Promotion of Transit-Oriented Development, housed within the Columbian development bank Findeter, which would provide technical and financial assistance on TOD implementation, based on locally-articulated needs.

The transport sector is the fastest-growing sector in terms of greenhouse gas emissions in Colombia. Urban areas suffer from growing traffic congestion, poor air quality and significant road safety concerns.

The Colombian government believes that a more holistic approach to transport planning and deployment is required, with better coordination of land-use and transport systems, and integration with social housing policy. Public and private investments (through Public Private Partnerships) will be channelled into showcase projects across a range of locations and intervention types.

Thus the project will promote better-designed, walkable, transit-oriented neighbourhoods and will contribute to reduced household transport costs, better access to jobs and services and improved social inclusion in the respective area.
