Results of SCOOT (Version 2.4) field trials in Santiago, Chile are available although they are not expressed as % benefits and therefore not comparable with other results in this document.
The survey took place during 1992 and 1993 and was carried out by Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile. The following three sub-networks were analysed for comparison:
- Providencia: heavy public transport flows, lots of bus-stops, high pedestrian flow, heavy congestion
- Apoquindo: moderate public transport flow, small number of bus-stops, moderate pedestrian flow and low degree of saturation
- Costanera: mostly used by cars on an arterial route.
The table below illustrates the economic benefits achieved by SCOOT after 1 year of operation.
