Mobilize 2022 Virtual | Towards a Safe and Accessible City - Lessons Learned from Bogotá
Transportation planning in Bogotá, the 2022 STA Winner, has shifted to prioritize accessibility, public health, environmental protection, and social inclusion in its strategies and policy decisions. The city has worked tirelessly to establish cycling as an essential means of transport and expand the cycle paths. They began gradually integrating electric buses into its BRT system to address air quality and public health challenges. Reclamation of urban spaces for pedestrian use has taken effect during this time by reconfiguring street spaces, adding open spaces, enhancing lighting, and adding street infrastructure in over 11 neighborhoods. The new development plans also address the specific needs of the citizens and provide the necessary support to improve access to the city. The Kids First Program aims to make trips on foot safer for low-income school children and establish school zones that use traffic calming measures to make roads around schools safer.

In this webinar, we will hear from Nicolás Estupiñán, Secretary of Mobility of Bogotá, and Nathaly Torregroza, Head of the Road Safety Office at the Mobility Secretariat of Bogotá on lessons learned from the process of implementing sustainable mobility solutions, as well as the city’s future plans for urban development to integrate the concepts of care, access, and safety of its citizens.
