Abstract

Cities are becoming the engine of the world. More and more people are moving to urban agglomerates in search of jobs, culture, and entertainment. Such a movement results in an unprecedented pressure upon the infrastructure of urban systems. Within that panorama, mobility is considered one of the major issues, and one of the cornerstones of the mobility-centered discussion is the fact that, among public transport modals, buses are still one of the main options, especially in developing countries. Bearing that in mind, the aim of the present work is to identify the main elements required to develop and implement a successful bus reform. Based on a comparative case analysis of Seoul and Rio de Janeiro, we conclude the dissertation by proposing a framework for bus reforms. We elaborate on the success factors of a good reform and put forth some recommendations for Seoul, Rio or any city looking for mobility solutions related to their bus management system and aimed at improving quality of life in their urban areas.
