Transit Development Plan (PDM)

Transit Development Plan (PDM)

The creation, processing and evaluation of the Camp de Tarragona Transit Development Plan are functions of the ATM (Autoridad Territorial de la Movilidad – Territorial Transit Authority) as established in Transit Act 9/2003 as well as the organisation statutes.

The regulations for these types of plans stipulate the need to ensure not only citizen participation, but also the participation of local entities which may be affected, transport entities and bodies, and the relevant departments of the Generalitat of Catalonia.

Creating a collective plan, one that is accepted by all the parties involved, makes the overall integration of all the different existing values and criteria possible, as opposed to placing priority on any one set of values or technical know-how, and allows for the acceptance of the principle of equality in decision-making. Integrating different perspectives on problems leads to more effective collective decision making and prevents the adoption of imposed solutions that end up proving unsuitable because differing points of views and alternatives have not been considered.

The work on the Camp de Tarragona Transit Development Plan may begin once the National Mobility Guidelines for Catalonia have been approved.
