ABSTRACT

In the context of the new strategies and policies of mobility and urban development in cities, tending to achieve an urban environment characterized by a high quality of life and consolidate a change towards a sustainable mobility model, the national, regional and local administrations in Madrid (Ministry of Development, Directorate General of Traffic DGT, Community of Madrid and City of Madrid) have joined their efforts to propose a project, as a pilot experience, for the adaptation of the left lane of the A-2 highway as Bus -VAO, whose objective is to improve travel times of public transport, its regularity and efficiency, promote modal transfer and reduce pollution, as part of the process towards more sustainable mobility in the Madrid region.
