Encouragement of cycling
The bicycle is much smaller slower speeds and lower maintenance and infrastructure needs than the car.
Car-free city centers, or a shift to more bicycle-centered urban design can make great savings in our transport systems’ chain of impact.
Energy use and greenhouse emissions associated with the provision of infrastructure and services for bicycles are considerably less than the requirements for cars.
