TUMIVolt will support the City of Cuenca in developing an integrated E-Mobility Plan to contribute to the city’s vision of reducing its transport related emissions and increase sustainable mobility.
The city of Cuenca, in Ecuador, is set in a valley along the Andean mountains, in the southern part of the country. Also known as Santa Ana de los Ríos de Cuenca, the city is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of its historical buildings, some of which date back to the 18th century.
Cuenca is the largest city of the area and the capital of Azuay province. It has around 500,000 inhabitants and an area of about 124 Km2. This is an agglomeration of medium size, with a relatively low population density. Cuenca is considered a car-oriented city and has 57% of its GHG emissions coming from transport. Public transport relies on buses and eventually on the recently constructed tram line which is not yet in operation. Bicycle rental is available to the public since 2019 and there are several cycling lanes available throughout the city.
