We support innovative mobility ideas with up to 200k!

TUMI is supporting 20 cities in achieving their sustainable mobility goals

TUMI's Mobility Actions around the World

Cities in developing countries and emerging economies face bigger challenges than ever before. Innovation is no longer optional; it is necessary so cities can continue to deliver results and improve life of their residents.

With the Global Urban Mobility Challenge we support cities with up to EUR 200k for your pilot project to start a mobility transformation in your city. The 2019 TUMI Global Urban Mobility Challenge, sponsored by BMZ is an initiative to support local leaders in their mobility transformation efforts.
