▶ Bicycle Culture by Design: Mikael Colville-Andersen at TEDxZurich - YouTube

The focus on re-establishing more liveable cities continues unabated. The primary problem however is that 85 years of traffic engineering revolving around the car has failed miserably. It's time for modern thinking. Design can help. Historically, streets were human spaces. Let's design our cities like we design toasters or smartphones, following the desire lines of our citizens. Using basic design principles instead of engineering is the surest route to developing thriving, human cities.

How NYC Could Revolutionize Urban Transport By Turning Its Taxi System Into A Sharing Economy - PSFK

How NYC Could Revolutionize Urban Transport By Turning Its Taxi System Into A Sharing Economy - PSFK | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Thanks to services such as Lyft, ride-sharing is now a much more accepted idea, except when it comes to the taxi business. Michael Szell at MIT’s Senseable City Lab, recently found out that 80% of all cab journeys in the city could have been shared. With more than150 million taxi trips taken in 2011, it’s clear that if people embrace the sharing economy, they could have an enormous environmental, and social impact on New York City.
