In February 2009, we had the pleasure to welcome two special visitors from New York. Elizabeth Press (from Street Films) and Caroline Samponaro (from Transportation Alternatives) came to Curitiba to see how our BRT system works. In the last years, New York has implemented lots of changes to make the city more habitable. They already have a network of 650 km de bikeways and it grows around 50 km each year, there is more then 3000 bikeparking spots, and a huge urban renewal.
The main goal of their visit is to gather more info and put that on a video. Besides showing good practices, they are available online working as an inspiration to others.
