“If you can change the street, you can change the world.” – Janette Sadik Khan
At Miovision, our mission is to use technology to improve the transportation experience for everyone. Over the past few months, we’ve been hard at work putting together the Changemaker’s Guide to Walkable and Bikeable Cities. Why? Because we want to empower transportation professionals to transform their streets. This guide will act as a fully-stocked toolkit for transportation professionals and government officials looking to build bike-friendly and walkable cities.
It’s time to rethink cities
For too long cities have prioritized cars over people. More roads, more traffic, and lower levels of health are all symptoms of the broken city. Transportation engineers are forced to use outdated metrics. Public planners are handcuffed by layers of red tape and analysis for pedestrian-friendly projects.
The change needed is already on its way. Cities across North America are recognizing that citizens of walkable and bikeable cities are healthier, wealthier and happier. We’re experiencing it first hand at Miovision, with our technology already being used for major bike lane projects.
