Abstract: Economic growth experienced in Colombia since 2001 has impacted on heavier traffic levels in the capital city of Bogota which in turn have worsened air pollution indicators and environmental public health conditions. Different political options competing at municipal elections have included their respective proposals for public transport in their programs. Impact expected from each of these scenarios makes it necessary to implement models allowing their assessment. Given this need, we present the Bogota Land Development Model (BoLD), a practical implementation of a Land-use Cover Change (LUCC) simulation based on two different public transport scenarios; a highway-based network and a suburban rail system. Transport scenarios are combined with options to expand the city into natural reserves. Customized geospatial analyses were developed for calculating accessibility distance decay factors based on overtime-spatial decay determination (OSDD) method. Results of the scenarios are presen ted both in maps and in “mobility circles”. Validation of the results suggests that OSDD and the mobility circles appear to contribute to better information to decision-making when evaluating urban scenarios driven by transport projects.
