DescriptionThis is a handbook of international best practices on how cities throughout the world have improved their transportation options provided to their citizens. Roadways for cars are bring turned into walkways and bikeways, light-rail transit systems have been installed to reduce traffic and pollution, and more citizens are riding bikes and walking.
In the olden days our cities were designed by cars for cars. Nowadays our cities are being designed, redesigned, and improved for the people who live there - citizens. Many communities throughout the world have decreased their reliance on the personal car, have promoted transit options, and have enhanced their urban environment by reducing traffic, congestion, pollution, and the number and width of their roadways.
Many citizens in cities throughout the world don't even need a car, since so many other transit options are available to them. The 40 best practice case studies contained in this volume are from 33 states and provinces in 19 countries located on six continents - from all over the world!
Each best practice case study contains the official name of the municipality, it's latest population figure, the region it is located in, the province or state that it is located in, the common name of the country that it is located in, the official name of the country that it is located in, and the community's official website.
