BMZ-funded regional programme Mobility4Cities supports city administrations in the South Caucasus in the design and implementation of more sustainable urban mobility approaches. Mobility4Cities focuses on technical assistance for the two Georgian cities Tbilisi and Batumi aiming to support improvement of municipal transport systems in the frame of sustainable integrated urban development. To sustainably improve the quality and safety of public transport services, Mobility4Cities plans to support Tbilisi and Batumi Transport Companies in the introduction and functional set-up of bus drivers’ training centres. The centres should ensure high quality service performance in public transport of both cities, especially by guaranteeing safe and eco driving standards. The core tasks associated with the functional set-up of these centres are: development of tailor-made and high quality training courses (including recommendations on several courses, their duration, frequency, detailed syllabi and all relevant materials connected with conduction of trainings, certification and monitoring), training of trainers, comprehensive and in-depth consultations on infrastructural set-up and facilities for practical trainings.
