Abstract

This paper makes a review of the transport policy for Santiago de Chile for the period 2000-2010. Its aim is to be critical but constructive in relation to this policy, as the discussion will not only help the transport Chilean community, but also practitioners from other countries in the same stage of evolution of its transport systems. First, a description of the Santiago’s urban characteristics is made. Next, comparing the 1991 and 2001 Origin and Destination Trip Surveys the evolution of Santiago’s transport system is illustrated. The numbers show that the city is following the well-known car-public transport vicious circle that developed countries have gone through. Then, the Santiago’s transport policy is summarised and discussed. During this discussion, we raise a number of concerns about some of the measures to be implemented for consideration of decision makers as well as for the transport professionals, which will ultimately have the responsibility of assembling the policy on the street.
