Originally posted on World Streets: The Politics of Transport in Cities:

When I or anyone else with a transportation issue burning in the front of our brain, walk into City Hall  to talk to the mayor about the important topic which bring us into her office, here is what we implicitly assume is her dominant preoccupation behind these exchanges:

If only it were so.

O ciclista Invisível: Transporte Justiça

Para a tradução Português clique em Traduzir no menu superior.
The transportation justice movement calls into question government subsidies of transportation forms that tend to benefit largely white and affluent urban and suburban commuters and advocates for better transit options and safer streets for poor people and people of color. This population of cyclists is largely uncounted, unrecognized, and unrepresented. Put simply, these are the invisible cyclists. In many cases, invisible cyclists are the constituents of transportation justice organizations, but only insofar as they are poor people of color. As cyclists, they remain invisible.

Equity-Based Transportation Planning, Policy and Practice: First Helsinki project announcement

* Para a tradução Português clique em Traduzir no menu superior.
This week we initiate work on the first stages of preparatory organization in support of an “open conversation” looking into the pros and cons, the possibilities and eventual impossibilities,  of creating an equity-based transportation system at the level of a city and the surrounding region.  This first pioneering project, in which we hope will become a series of leading world city projects building on this first example, is being carried out under the leadership of  the Helsinki Department of City Planning and Transportation, and is running over the period mi-February through mid-April.

Criação de massa crítica no Facebook

É fantástico que em apenas 24 horas tenhamos passado de zero a 26 membros, a maioria de nós vindos do antigo Grupo do Facebook. O próximo passo é trazermos mais gente, como por exemplo amigos que partilham as ideias que temos. O truque é trazer os cerca de 100 membros do antigo Grupo e depois então crescer. É muito parecido com ciclismo seguro: Quanto mais pessoas andarem de bicicleta na rua mais seguro se torna para todos.

Obrigado a quem partilha da nossa visão e tem tempo para nos ler. Continuar a ler

In homage to Lee Schipper

In homage to Lee Schipper Our long-time colleague and very dear friend Lee Shipper left us on Tuesday evening, warmly surrounded by family and loving friends. Since he meant so much to so many of us who have been involved in the uphill struggle for sustainability in all its forms and corners of our lives, I thought it would be appropriate to open up these pages over the next days, and possibly more than that, to a selection of pieces in which the author reflects on the ki … Read More

Car Crazy: Lee Schipper on the Perils of Asia’s Hyper-Motorization

Car Crazy: Lee Schipper on the Perils of Asia’s Hyper-Motorization Our old friend and long time colleague Lee Schipper is sitting in a hospital bed in Berkeley California today, and since your editor is stuck in Paris and can't visit him, we thought that while he gets his strength back we would  reach into our and others archives and publish a series of pieces to celebrate his deep knowledge of all that World Streets is about, his  excellent judgement and his world level communications skills. (And if you have s … Read More
