Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (PMUS) of Rio de Janeiro
The Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (PMUS) of the city of Rio de Janeiro was composed of a series of deliberative tables during the process of elaboration of the Plan, according to the directives of the Master Plan of the city. The PMUS produced a document with guidelines for public investments in the city's transport infrastructure for ten years, starting in 2016. Individuals and civil society entities were able to participate in the two face-to-face meetings that discussed and identified transportation problems in the city. Around 90 people participated in this process of evaluation and identification of issues of urban mobility.
