Brazil - Salvador Urban Transport Project (English)

The Salvador Urban Transport Project seeks to: a) improve the quality of public urban transport in the Salvador Metropolitan Region (SMR) by enhancing the development of a fully integrated urban transport system, under the coordination of a regional transport coordination commission; and b) transfer from the Federal Government to the State of Bahia and Municipality of Salvador the ownership and management of the Salvador subdivision of the Brazilian Urban Train Company (CBTU) system. There are two project components. 1) Infrastructure and equipment investment component will support to a) build the Salvador surface metrorail under the Build-Operate-Transfer concept; b) build/rehabilitate the CBTU's Salvador subdivision transfer stations between the trains, metrorail, buses, and ferries; build the housing for resettlement; and finance the Project Management Oversight Consultant and project supervision consultants. 2) Institutional and policy development component will a) assist to prepare an integrated transport policy, land use, and air quality management strategy for the SMR to meet both transport and air quality targets and to introduce sound cost-recovery, tariff, regulatory and subsidy policies; and b) undertake a comprehensive traffic management review of the SMR.
