Publication date: 
Thursday, February 7, 2019

Panama is working on the transformation from a traditional scheme of public transportation to a more integrated system, which will offer citizens access to quality and accessible transport services. The Government contacted the Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) to assist in doing an analysis of two alternatives that the city is considering: electrical buses and natural gas buses.

The project engages the key stakeholders, including the Secretariat of Energy, the Ministry of Environment, the Municipal Government, the Transit and Ground Transportation Authority.

This technical assistance will inform Panama’s strategic decisions towards creating sustainable public transport for the metropolitan area.
