What moves you? We need to enhance and revitalize our areas, changing them from a bunch of buildings into a community.
How can we move people, cars, services or goods through a neighborhood? Envision healthful, comfortable, pleasurable urban transit.
Change our current and failing models of transportation into something to benefit the families of urban communities. Imagine more pedestrian and bicycle-friendly streets and conceptualize new forms of public transit. We are seeking any and all ideas to reduce traffic and limit our reliance on polluting cars.
CONSIDER:
Ways that traversing a city might be made more enjoyable, whatever the weather

What would happen if we made children more important than cars
What would motivate people to use less toxic transportation, instead of cars
