The Department of Transportation (DOTr), in partnership with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), launched the promotion of Low Carbon Urban Transport System (LCUTS) in a forum held at Novotel Manila in Quezon City on Tuesday, January 07.

The LCUTS in the Philippines Project aims to help promote and create an enabling environment for the commercialization of low carbon urban transport systems, like electric and hybrid vehicles, in the country.

According to DOTr Undersecretary for Road Transport and Infrastructure Mark de Leon, the department is really looking into having a clean environment in the country and that’s by going electric. And through this forum, the Transport Department will be able to study the impact of e-vehicles, incentives to users, as well as standards and regulations to make.
