Timm Amstein Posted 3 months ago Enrique Peñalosa: Why buses represent democracy in action Thanks for the talk, but why is your first goal to optimize for mobility and not to minimize the need for people to drive to work, to the shop etc.? Why are you sticking to the model of car based cities where this mobility is required? Please take a look at the european cities and see the difference. Kent Larson presented this in a brilliant way, here at TED. http://www.ted.com/talks/kent_larson_brilliant_designs_to_fit_more_people_in_every_city.html Look at London, look at Paris, Berlin, Madrid or Rome. All of these have their own problems but there is one thing they have in common. If you need something you can walk there. And if you are lucky work is also just 10 minutes away.
