ANALYSIS OF ALTERNATIVE MOBILITY IN BUENOS AIRES

Can Buenos Aires become the new Copenhagen or Amsterdam? In 2010 the ambitious Buenos Aires Ecobikes project began, and started making a change in the city but, for how long?

In this Lab, we present an analysis and interactive comparison of key indicators related to transport and mobility for 15 large cities in Latin America.
