Resumo

We evaluate the effect of the bus lanes policy in São Paulo between 2010 and 2015. Our focus is the impact of this policy on vehicle speed in other lanes. We use a difference-in-differences model to evaluate the effect of this policy. We find that the average effect of the bus lanes policy is not to affect vehicle speed in other lanes. We also find that the effect is not homogeneous and varies according to the city zone and bus lane operating time (dedicated or intermittent). The estimated effects according to these factors range from 0% to 15%. Regarding policy implications, our result of the bus lane effects associated with its reduced cost supports this urban mobility policy as suitable for large cities in developing countries.
