CARDONA, Santiago; ESCOBAR, Diego A.  and  MONCADA, Carlos A.. Average travel time saving index as a complementary variable in the methodology Betterment Levy for financing road infrastructure. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2020, vol.31, n.4, pp.17-26. ISSN 0718-0764.

This research article proposes the saving index as a complementary variable for the calculation of the allocate benefit in the financing of road infrastructure projects by betterment levy in the Manizales model. For this purpose, it is proposed to use the global accessibility average and the integral accessibility average to calculate travel times on different scenarios, to quantify the savings generated by the proposed project, and to complement two mobility variables presented in the betterment levy models for benefit allocation. The global accessibility average calculates the savings generated by the project. The integral accessibility average measures the improvements on travel times generated by the project. The results show that the Manizales model that was applied to financing projects through betterment levy is best accepted by inhabitants where taxes were raised. In conclusion, the proposed variables can be applied to improve and complement the Manizales model.
