Transportation's Next Stop: Paris
April 15th, 2008

On New York Magazine’s Intelligencer blog, Aarron Naparstek writes that alternative transportation advocates are looking to Paris for ideas of how to deal with traffic problems now that Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s London-inspired congestion pricing proposal has been rejected by lawmakers in Albany. In recent years, the mayor of Paris has created new pedestrian malls, eliminated on-street parking, upgraded bus service, and even dumped 2,000 tons of sand on an old highway to create an urban beach. (Vacation on the FDR?!) For more on what experts are thinking about the future of traffic control, see Gotham Gazette’s articles.
