Interview with Enrique Peñalosa
As mayor of Bogotá, Colombia, Enrique Peñalosa accomplished remarkable changes of monumental proportions for the people of his country in just three years.
Peñalosa changed the way Bogotá treated its non-driving citizens by restricting automobile use and instituting a bus rapid transit system which now carries a 1/2 million residents daily. Among other improvements: he widened and rebuilt sidewalks, created grand public spaces, and implemented over one hundred miles of bicycle paths.
TOPP Executive Director Mark Gorton discusses with Peñalosa some of these transportation achievements and asks what the future could hold for NYC if similar improvements were made here.
