Every City Should Have a Law of Two Words: Pedestrians First

Publisher/Sponsor: 

This report looks at four pillars of liveable cities:

  1. WALKABILITY: To design streets for everybody, design for pedestrians first – slow speeds, raised crosswalks. Next, make streets interesting for walkers.
  2. BIKEABILITY: First step: Make bikers feel safe.
  3. PUBLIC SPACES: Parks, walkable streets and other public places are great equalizers; they bring people together, and they can energize people through recreation.
  4. PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION:High-speed buses with dedicated lanes are the most cost-effective way to move people, though offering choices to commuters is best of all.
