The implementation of Integrated Public Transport System (SITP) in Bogotá D.C. requires reviewing the pavement design and maintenance in the main corridors through which circulate public transport lines. It is expected that SITP bring an appropriate transit behavior to the buses drivers: The use of the right side lane and the mandatory bus stops. These trends along with the lower fleet and higher occupancy generate negative effects on pavement structures, showing the need to increase the dimensions or thickness of the pavements. The aspects reported in this study will assist to district agencies to include the roads design, construction and maintenance in Bogotá D.C.
