The Institute for Transportation and Development Policy has been working in Mexico since 2006, giving support to cities which promote sustainable and equitable transport systems and improve the quality of life of their citizens.
ITDP is working in five cities in Mexico: Mexico City, Guadalajara, Monterrey, Puebla & Queretaro. Its work includes developing efficient bike infrastructure and public bike systems, Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) planning and optimization, parking policy reform, and city revitalization.
ITDP also works to influence transport policy on the city level, partnering with local institutions, city governments, and civil society.
The institute has put together this short video on why traffic congestion keeps increasing even though cities, states and countries keep building more roads. It takes less than four minutes. It’s subtitled for those of us who don’t speak Spanish.
