In a modern society, transport is a necessity for carrying out certain activities that human communities are involved in. This need for mobility is on a continuous rise and can be characterized by the possibility of moving from one point to another, using different means of transport, in order to facilitate the performed activities. The purpose of this research is to design and evaluate the implementation of a system of reversible lanes using simulation. As methodology, it starts from an analysis of data collected from real traffic condition through implementation and simulation with the Synchro application. The analysis proposes solutions to decongest traffic through the implementation of reversible lanes and the simulation is performed again for impact assessment. Our results suggest that the implementation of reversible lanes can help to decongest traffic if complementary solutions are adopted. The approach can be used successfully in any scientific analysis and design approach to optimize traffic flows.
