In a recent interview with EL TIEMPO, the official detailed the importance of considering this alternative, as well as encouraging municipalities to propose other measures that contribute to mobility. As an incentive, municipalities that offer the best solutions may receive priority in further resource allocation or fund allocation by the Nation.

Camargo also added: “The municipalities that propose the best sustainable mobility practices will be those that prioritize the allocation of more or more resources and have Ministry support, this is a matter of incentives.“.
