Pilot Project

Cuenca

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 pilot

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 Cuatro Ríos de Cuenca, the city is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of its historical buildings located at the city center, some of which date back to the 18th century.

Cuenca is Ecuador’s third most populated city and 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 has the highest per capital rate of car ownership of any city in Ecuador. Road transport generates around 57% GHG emissions. Public transport relies on 12-meter length buses all by diesel engine and on a recently constructed tram line which started operating in 2020. A bicycle rental system is available to the public since 2019 with several cycling lanes available throughout the city.

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.
