Transport Policies in Latin America
AbstractThe issues of air pollution and traffic congestion in Latin America have been growing increasingly important since the end of the 20th century. The latter may help explain why several cities around the continent have tried different combination of public policies with vary-ing degrees of success. We describe the policies that outline the Latin American experience in this matter and hope to be a useful reference to subsequent research in the area.
