Over the course of time, infrastructure in Europe and beyond has been largely driven by car-usage. With the welfare of societies increasing and car sales and infrastructure growing, this gradually led to spatial problems, especially in cities. As cars occupy more space, cities suffer from congestion and motor noise. At the same time, there is less space for pedestrians, cyclists and public transport commuters.
As a response to this trend, Cities-4-People, over the course of its 3 years, brought together the local community in 5 pilot-areas to rethink the future of their mobility in a bottom up, collaborative ways. Cities have identified their challenges, came up with prototype solutions and have qualified the most appropriate ones in order to scale them up and change their mobility landscape.
