Mobility, a Work in Progress

Sat, 09/01/2018 - 12:13

The Mexico City government favored vehicle infrastructure for years without taking sustainable mobility into account. This has resulted in a collapsed infrastructure that can barely handle the 35 million daily trips that citizens have to complete. The implementation of the new Mobility Law in 2016 has led to some benefits in terms of public transportation, including the Metrobús system. Meanwhile, the entrance of several players in the alternative mobility sector has also helped alleviate traffic and reduce the number of vehicles on the roads. The arrival of a new administration will introduce fresh development opportunities for the city but in the meantime, this is the status of the city's mobility ecosystem.
