Welcome to Sustainable Urban Transport Project (SUTP)
Achieving sustainable urban transport has become a primary objective with the adoption of National Urban Transport Policy (NUTP) by the Government of India (GoI). To foster a long-term partnership between GoI and state/local governments in the implementation of a greener environment under the ambit of the NUTP, GoI has initiated the Sustainable Urban Transport Project with the support of the Global Environment Facility (GEF), World Bank and UNDP. Efforts to reduce or contain environmental risks form an important component of this project.
SUTP consists of capacity building programmes and city demonstration projects, which aim to induce a major change in urban transport in India. The project will assist in the training and professional development of transport professionals in India it will also produce manuals and guidelines for urban transport institutions, systems and design processes. The project is supporting the design and delivery of innovative sustainable urban transport systems in five demonstration cities.
SUTP is supported by the Government of India (GoI), through the Ministry of Urban Development (MoUD), the Global Environment Fund (GEF), World Bank, United Nations Development Agency (UNDP), the states and cities for which the demonstration projects are located within.
The project is administered nationally by a Project Management Unit (PMU) in the MoUD. The PMU is staffed by a team of professionals supported by a Project Management Consultant (PMC). Each of the demonstration cities has a Project Implementation Unit (PIU).
