Abstract

The general objective of this study is to verify the effectiveness of public policies for urban mobility, with bibliographic bases adopted in a medium-sized city, based on Law nº 12.587/2012, having as the focus of study the municipality of Passo Fundo, in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. The methodology adopted consists of bibliographical research on laws, documents, books, scientific articles, dissertations and theses related to urban public policies and sustainable urban mobility, as well as the theme of the right to the city. Through this bibliographical study, especially of the legislation analyzed, it was possible to list and categorize the guidelines of the National Urban Mobility Policy, in addition to verifying compliance with the guidelines by the Plano de Mobilidade da cidade de Passo Fundo – PlanMob (2014). The results demonstrate that public transport can be understood as one of the main agents for urban development in the city of Passo Fundo / or other Brazilian cities, with the possibility of more efficient displacements, better use of the road network, as well as an important connection between users and their activities. The city's main challenges overcome physical barriers such as infrastructure works, it still has to overcome ideological positions, prejudices and eventual resistance on the part of users to more drastic changes that may be implemented in favor of urban sustainability.
