Urban Mobility

 

Before the Mobility Pact, the PAC program already invested in the sector

Before the demonstrations, the Lula and Dilma already invested in about 200 works of urban mobility in all regions of the country. In 2012, for example, two lines were launched PAC Mobility for large and medium sized cities. The first, facing cities above 700 thousand inhabitants, selected projects in 51 municipalities in 18 states, with estimated US $ 32 billion investment. But the CAP Mobility Medium Cities is investing $ 7.9 billion to improve the traffic and public transport in 66 municipalities of 19 states, with a population between 250,000 and 700,000 inhabitants.

In June 2014, President Dilma announced the second phase of the Mobility Pact, benefiting 26 municipalities (including eight capital cities) with a population between 400,000 and 700,000 inhabitants.

The PAC also invested in an innovative model for urban mobility development: the Complexo do Alemão Cable Car in Rio de Janeiro. In operation since July 2011, it is the first mass transport cable car system in Brazil. It connects up with the railway system and has six stations. There are 152 gondolas holding up to eight passengers each, running 3.5 kilometers. With the cable car, a journey that previously took an hour and a half now is completed in 16 minutes.

Urban mobility is legacy of the 2014 World Cup

In 2007, when Brazil was chosen to host the World Cup in 2014, Lula's government perceived a number of responsibilities that needed to be fulfilled for the country to receive Brazilian and foreign tourists in the manner the event warranted. However, many of these preparations had already been provided for in Lula's plans for Brazil.

This was the case of urban mobility. The Brazilian cities were already growing at a pace that was not accompanied by the existing public transport systems available. Therefore, the mobility projects contained in the 2014 Cup Responsibility Matrix - that are not part of the PAC - are nothing more than previously identified projects needed to enhance the quality of life in the 12 World Cup host cities. And they will be a legacy for Brazil from the biggest football event on the planet.
