The government states that transport “is responsible for about 25% of greenhouse gas emissions” and, as such, assumes that the sector “should, by 2030, reduce its emissions by 40%”.

The executive admits that a large part of the impacts of transport “are inseparable from the excessive use of the car”, stating that they will “invest in the continuity of policies that make sustainable mobility options more competitive than the use of individual vehicles”.


The Government also intends to “continue to give priority to the railway with the conclusion, by 2023, of the investments foreseen in the Railway 2020 program and the start of the projects foreseen in the National Investment Program 2030, with its three axes of action".

In order to promote the decarbonisation of the transport sector, the Government plans to expand transport networks and services, either through the Program to Support Densification and Reinforcement of the Public Transport Offer (PROTransP), or by implementing plans to expand heavy passenger transport networks (metro) in metropolitan areas and in territories with high population and economic density.

The Government is also committed to investing in public transport companies, in order to allow them to increase the “availability and quality of supply”, in addition to improving the quality of services.

The program also emphasizes the intention to support the renewal of public transport fleets "with zero or reduced emission vehicles", in addition to training transport authorities to promote the development of "more flexible transport networks and better able to respond to the needs of low-demand territories, transforming PROTransP into the form of financing contracts for the development of local supply”.
