Encouraging walking and cycling

Walking and cycling are key to sustainable urban transport. The first thing you need to do? Develop comprehensive cycling and walking concepts with high quality street design standards for sidewalks, cycle paths and complete streets. This means, you will need to limit road space for cars and improve safety for pedestrians and cyclists at intersections. This could also include cycling highways, pedestrian zones with removed barriers for pedestrians or the implementation of green waves for bicycles. Creating a complete urban cycling network and appointing cycling and pedestrian advisors in transport administrations and introducing a public bike sharing system are also good ways to encourage more walking and cycling in your city.
