Abstract

Este trabajo estima el impacto que tuvo la reforma integral del sistema de transporte público en Santiago de Chile, denominada Transantiago, sobre la contaminación atmosférica en dicha ciudad. Un aporte del trabajo es que muestra cómo, utilizando un modelo econométrico y datos diarios de contaminación, develar técnicamente los impactos ambientales de un programa público que son difíciles de aislar y medir por la existencia de algunas variables confundentes. Se concluye que el Transantiago disminuyó en 3,9 µg/m3 el promedio diario de concentraciones de MP10 en la ciudad, provocando un ahorro que se estima en US$ 200 millones al año en el escenario medio, de los cuales un 12% corresponden al ahorro de gastos en atenciones públicas de salud.
