Rethinking Mobility: Putting People First (2019)

Rethinking Mobility: Putting People First envisions the vibrancy of a city that puts people first in its planning, policies, development, and mobility systems.

Published on The Citymaker, Think City’s online magazine, this essay examines the manifold costs of allowing cars to remain a city’s primary mode of transport. The environmental, economic, and public health costs of car-focused cities are contrasted with the high quality of life afforded by investing in alternatives.
