Final Report
The purpose of this study was to analyze and summarize the background to three main policies on urban transport implemented in Brazil — public transport regulation (and BRT construction), vehicle emission control and traffic safety ‐ by seeking out both their virtues and their limitations. These topics were chosen because they are major issues besetting developing countries and also due to the importance of Brazil as a special case — given its size and socioeconomic characteristics. The study encompassed the period extending from 1960 to 20081.
