Grants to this Grantee
for advancing electrification in urban transport  
The Institute for Transportation & Development Policy promotes enviornmentally sustainable and socially equitable transportation in cities worldwide. With this grant, ITDP will make progress toward its goal of replacing high-carbon personal vehicles with low-carbon, shared and electric vehicles. Specifically, ITDP will work with cities to electrify buses, informal transit and shared micromobility in China and India. The lessons from this work will serve to inform the development of a global electric bus policy and implementation guidebook.

ITDP's mission is to promote environmentally sustainable and socially equitable transportation in cities worldwide. ITDP is a global organization that works locally, in dozens of cities worldwide, while also serving as a global platform to share best practices. The organization aims to mitigate greenhouse gas emission from transportation by reducing demand for vehicle miles traveled and by shifting demand to less carbon-intensive modes like public transit, cycling, walking and microtransit.
