Participating in investments
5.2 billion euro of investment are planned for improving mobility in Brussels during the 2015-2025 period. The largest part of these large-scale investments will be financed by the annual allocation of investments awarded to STIB by the Brussels-Capital Region and the amounts allocated by the Federal government under the cooperation agreement with Beliris. As a responsible public company, STIB is also expected to help fund these investments, as far as its resources allow, thanks primarily to savings made under the Drive programme.
The Drive Programme
The Drive programme establishes the plan for annual savings to be made by STIB during the period covered by its management contract, using measures to optimise purchases, maintenance activities, energy consumption, reduce absenteeism, etc. In 2013, STIB committed to saving 116 million euro (to be indexed) in 5 years. The full amount was reinjected in investments in mobility in Brussels.
