Lessons on Sustainability- Curitiba

28 Jul

A repost from Solihull Bicycle Campaign vault May 2015

Curitiba represents a city that made the decision to put the well being of its citizens first in transportation and successfully developed a model of city that actively reduced car ownership but increased accessibility. However, it should be noted that this was not achieved simply through one initiative but through a number of different projects. Such as the rapid transit buses, pedestrian streets and cycle infrastructure, that allow people to choose their mode of travel and get around efficiently and safely.
