The Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (PMUD) and the Traffic and Parking Plans (PDCS) will require an investment of $1.2 million (11.9 MDH). They will be carried out by the consortium composed of the Swiss engineering firm Transitec, the French firm Setec, and their Moroccan subsidiaries.
The face of urban traffic in the Agadir conurbation will be reshaped over the next 13 months. The region will be equipped with a sustainable urban mobility plan (PMUD) and traffic and parking plans (PDCS) for a total amount of $1.2 million (11.9 million dirhams). The aim is to take into account the new mobility conditions in the Greater Agadir area.

Ten years of planning in Agadir
The study that will be conducted in this sense will include the identification of issues and the definition of the mobility strategy and scenarios. In addition, an action plan will be drawn up, as well as documents relating to the PMUD and the PDCS.
The interest in mobility in the Agadir agglomeration is not new. It is the result of work already carried out over several years through strategic studies aimed at mobility planning, in particular the completion in 2013 of feasibility studies for high service level bus lines (BHNS), their update in 2016, and the development in 2015 of the Greater Agadir Urban Travel Plan (PDU). In 2021, the traffic plan of Agadir was completed, in addition to the study of restructuring the public transport network in 2022.
At the same time, the territory of Greater Agadir, which has more than one million inhabitants, has been covered by other urban and territorial planning documents, including the regional land use plan (SRAT), the master plan for development and urban planning (SDAU), the regional development program (PDR) and other development plans (PA). The duration of this strategy is ten years in order to cover a sufficiently long period of time to allow for the realization of the actions that will have been proposed.
Two committees to oversee the study
Three perimeters have been established for the development of the MUDP. The primary purpose of this plan is to propose measures that generate sustainable urban mobility by showing how the action program is likely to curb the current trend based on mobility dominated by the private car (one of the main causes of greenhouse gas emissions).
In addition, three work horizons have been identified: the long-term (2040), the medium-term (2035), and the short-term (2030). Regarding the governance of the study, two committees will be set up to oversee it, namely the steering committee (COPIL) and the technical committee that will monitor and evaluate the progress of the studies. The preparation of the PMUD and the PDCS has been entrusted to a consortium consisting of the Swiss consultancy Transitec, the French consultancy Setec and their Moroccan subsidiaries.
The Greater Agadir Intercommunal Cooperation Establishment (ECI), as the contracting authority, launched these plans through its executive arm, the Greater Agadir Local Development Company for Urban Mobility and Travel. These plans will be a reference base for operational planning for all policy decisions and will also serve to define a shared vision for the organization of the movement of people and goods, but also traffic and parking in the region.
