I came across this article posted at the Planetizen site entitled Pro-Walking, or Anti-Car. It is a good article that heads-on addresses the the differences of being pro-walking to that of being anti-car in terms of transport policies in cities. I think these concepts including the “nuts to crack” list provided by the author is relevant not only to cities that want to promote walking and cycling over car use, but to individuals and groups as well who seem to be following a hard line when in comes to their advocacy to recover road space in favor of pedestrians and cyclists.

  1. Hi. This is off the topic. Would you know if there is a proposal of creating a BRT in EDSA with the following features:
    * the innermost lane is barricaded (except for certain intersections where barricading would cut off the traffic flow)
    * certain MRT stations (those with emergency stairs at the middle of EDSA) would be used as BRT stations
    Thank you.
