TMB Strategic plan 2025
The TMB Strategic Plan for 2025 , is the result of intense work and a participatory process held over the last few months featuring contributions from several participatory groups leading up to its approval: the Board of Directors itself, metropolitan-area mayors, transport-associated authorities, the Advisory Board, metro and bus company committees, TMB technical and management teams and so on. Models from several benchmark cities in mobility from around Europe were also analysed at the same time.
The new strategic plan presents specific and significant goals, such as the reduction of 17,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions by 2025. This will be achieved through various measures, such as a 6% reduction in energy consumption in the metro, the application of technologies enabling a recovery of the energy generated by trains and the use of electricity from the metro network to power the charging of buses (at a lower cost), among other projects.
This commitment to a greener future also translates into the promotion and commissioning of a hydrogen station open to public use and the construction of a 550-vehicle green depot in Zona Franca, digitalising management and operations, energy efficiency and the use of renewable energies.
The plan’s goals include increasing metro and bus network use to 2.3 million journeys a day on work days, up 10% on the maximum levels achieved in 2019. This means it would be possible to reach the target of 65% of motorised journeys carried out in Barcelona on public transport.
Improvements to bus and metro services
The TMB 2025 road map also provides for improvements to the bus and metro services as well as launching new mobility services, such as metropolitan bicycles, as part of a clear commitment to sustainability and innovation that would turn the organisation into a global benchmark for mobility as a public service vocation..
