BIKE INITIATIVES - ARGENTINA
Buenos Aires - 14 Copenhagenize Index 2015 Buenos Aires has succeeded in modernising itself to include bicycles as transport. In the past three years, over 140 km of bicycle infrastructure has been implemented - much of it protected - along with a bike share programme. Buenos Aires proves that the success of Seville was not a one-off. They have showed that with the right political will and investment a large city can transform itself for the new millennium. It's not all about the bike. Buenos Aires is focusing on the big picture - becoming a more liveable city in general. Bus rapid transit lines, traffic calmed streets - all good for city life and all good for putting the bike back on the landscape. Many cities talk of how cycling is rising fast. In Buenos Aires they can talk of how cycling levels are exploding. At the moment, Baires is the city to watch (Copenhagenize.eu).
