Assessment on the Environmental and Mobility benefits derived from the School Transport Program in Mexico City (PROTE) -2011

2011

Abstract

The School Transport Program in Mexico City (PROTE) is a public policy that mandatorily establishes the use of a collective bus transportation system for transferring students to and from schools. After evaluating this Plan, the Mario Molina Center (MMC) concluded that PROTE is an efective public policy, as long as the emission of particles is contained.

The Government of Mexico City employed the methodology developed in this study to calculate the reduction of emissions that derived from the implementation of the Program. From the results obtained, the three major school bus companies in Mexico City changed their routes in order to decrease the number of idle miles, and new alternative technologies to reduce emissions of PM10 and NOx are being explored.
