Las respuestas varían en función de las percepciones, de perspectivas y de nuestro entorno. Si me toca hacer fila en un parque de atracciones, la experiencia será completamente diferente si estoy sentado a la sombra o de pie bajo el sol. Si me llevan al cine, necesito saber si es para una buena película antes de decidir si invertir o no mi tiempo. Las 10 mejores prácticas de transporte de 10 grandes ciudades según Streetfilms.

Metrocable y escaleras mecánicas (Medellín, Colombia) Hasta hace un par de años, Medellín era vista como una ciudad insegura producto de la delincuencia que aumentó tras una crisis que sufrió en los años 70 y 80 en la que se dispararon las tasas de desempleo.

When we launched the website a month ago we didn’t expect much. The project was interesting to us having both lived around the Boston area and being frequent riders of the T, but the website has reached people outside of our bubble and the interest from the online community has been great. Several people have reached out for the source code and we’ve spent a little time adding comments and trying to better organize the code base. All of the JavaScript files and the Less stylesheets are available under the MIT license, you are free to use them under the terms of that license.

The raw data is also available on dropbox for you to download and experiment with. Mike and Brian Like this: Medellín vs. Bogotá en movilidad. Why Can't Public Transit Be Free? About 500 subway riders in Stockholm have an ingenious scheme to avoid paying fares.

Why Can't Public Transit Be Free?

The group calls itself Planka.nu (rough translation: "dodge the fare now"), and they’ve banded together because getting caught free-riding comes with a steep $120 penalty. Here's how it works: Each member pays about $12 in monthly dues—which beats paying for a $35 weekly pass—and the resulting pool of cash more than covers any fines members incur. As an informal insurance group, Planka.nu has proven both successful and financially solvent.

“We could build a Berlin Wall in the metro stations,” a spokesperson for Stockholm’s public-transit system told The New York Times. “They would still try to find ways to dodge.” These Swedes’ strategy might seem like classic corner-cutting, but there’s a dreamy political tint to their actions. These fare-dodging collectives' egalitarian dream happens to align with some hopes of U.S. policy makers. 7 ciudades que están sacando los automóviles de sus calles. ​Using open tools to create the digital map of Cairo’s public transit. Follow the authors, Tatiana (@tatipq) and Diego (@canaless) on Twitter The first step in any transit planning process involves understanding the current supply and demand of transit services.

​Using open tools to create the digital map of Cairo’s public transit

In most of the countries where we work, understanding the supply of services is a messy, costly and lengthy process, since most cities have little knowledge of bus routes, services and operational schemes. Having a digital map (GIS) and General Transit Feed Specifications (GTFS) details of a network allows a transit agency to do better service planning and monitoring, as well as provide information to its users. A traditional GIS software approach often requires a team of consultants and months of work. Last month, however, we were presented with the challenge to use innovative tools do the same work in less than two weeks. Upon arrival, we reached out to our counterparts in the Cairo Transport Authority (CTA) and Cairo Traffic Engineering Bureau (CTEB). What Your Nearest Transit Station Says About Your Income. New visualizations map household income by rail stops in Chicago, Portland, Atlanta and D.C.

What Your Nearest Transit Station Says About Your Income

A city's transit system is like its backbone. The web formed by intersecting train lines is unique to every city, and each stop on each branch reflects the character of the neighborhood it runs through. A recent New Yorker project used the city's subway stops as portals through which to examine income inequality. New visualizations by MIT Media Lab's You Are Here project do the same for four other cities: Chicago, Portland, Atlanta, and Washington, D.C. By analyzing Census data in the half-mile radius around each rail transit stop, the researchers captured income variations of nearby residents. The Orange Line, meanwhile, travels through some of the wealthiest neighborhoods, and as a result the average income for this branch is the highest in the system.
