Urban Mobility – Studies 01

Take a ride with us to understand what urban mobility is.


To start from the beginning, urban mobility is nothing more than that the capacity of a group of people to move within an urban area and the motivations here are diverse can be social and economic or even affective reasons.

After all, who has never been to the other end of the city to find the crush in it and how we do it all using the transport modals. Of course, buses, cars and all these are means that we use to transport in an urban public space.

And that is where the great challenge of urban mobility comes in, so that public management can achieve an adequate urban planning without congestion. The problem here is that the urban population is constantly growing, and this hinders everything that needs to be planned.

As the means of transportation the roads the photos of the roads is finally a damn thing: – Ah but why in some places urban mobility works better than in another sector? –

To better understand, we need to see how urban planning in developed countries happened quite differently from underdeveloped countries.

In the poorest countries urban occupation happened in an accelerated and disorderly way, it was something like this: those who came first and had more money lived near the work place that used to be in the center of big cities.

Since they were formed mainly from the attraction of labor to the industries, already in the richer countries the urban planning in this way more organized in which the people of low income were allocated in the centers of the cities exactly to avoid great displacements to the workplace, the result of this is the opposite of what we often see here the real estate speculation if they give the areas more distant making those who had more resources could have cars to move around the city.

But do not be fooled into thinking that everything would be solved if it were that way everywhere, the car is a product, symbol of the ideology of post-Cold War capitalism and a strong stimulus what people have today for the people to buy their vehicle is the main problem of urban mobility nowadays and looks that this account is not so difficult.

So they make you pay dearly for a car that carries five people but that will often only have one passenger and barely going to leave the place with so much congestion mainly at rush hour on the other hand you have other means of transportation both road and rail as bus subways and trains that move the same amount of people occupying much less space and notes there for them that without this is the biggest contradiction of urban mobility understood all this is clear in this race.

Oops! One minute! Red sign that public administration is going through one of the biggest problems in public transport and here we are talking about Brazil is the monopoly of administrative groups that operates transport companies in public private partnerships and that of course I made a profit and then the result is that that we already know transport with precarious abusive prices without security and with poorly planned displacements causing the population to spend a long time from one place to the other just so you have notion if you spend four hours a day inside a bus in ten years and equals 9 thousand and 600 hours which is the same as 400 days.

When you see that already spent almost two years of your life inside the public transport seems crazy but it is the reality of many people and use public transport car out of the way I get my bass and I leave after all the bicycle is a free and healthy means of free transport but unfortunately we find it difficult to pedal everyday.

It lacked public debts, lacked safety for cyclists and at the same time this is a group that grows more and more and it gets even worse for people from peripheral areas they can not get around properly by bicycle because they have faced long distances and lack of infrastructure such as the existence of cycle paths or cycle paths or the basics right and since we are talking about access to the city.
