Final Report
Summary:
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 2008.
