  • Updating the 2010 social-economic scenarios
  • Projecting variables for 2016, and distributing traffic zones (BRTs + game-typical zones)
  • Developing travel matrices
  • Traffic simulations, considering BRTs, BRS and Metro Line 4
  • Identifying efficiency gains in journey duration, costs, impacts on traffic, passenger gains, integration capability, accessibility, increase in mobility, and population safety factor
  • Proposal of preferred and alternative routes for public transportation
  • Operational plan for the different systems with strategies for game days
