Seville’s transformation

Cycling – 0.2% of trips in 2000.

87 miles network cost about $43 million to install between 2007 and 2009.

Seville’s engineers built a network of comfortable separated bikeways connecting the city that now carries 7% of all city traffic.

The city expects 15% of all trips in Seville to be made by bike in 2015.

The €32m cycle network carries 72,000 cyclists on weekdays compared with the city’s underground system, which cost €600 million and carries 40,000 people daily.

Wow.

There’s more from peopleforbikes.org and the London Cycle Campaign.
