More Road Space

One of the great things about riding a bike, and about public transport is how little space it takes. Especially compared to cars.

Smarter transport frees up so much space on the roads. Groups have taken some stunning photos to illustrate just how much extra space there could be on the roads.

There's also the famous photo of the space to transport 60 people, and this animation of the space saved by a bus.

But one of the pictures I find the most compelling is this one from an international study. Building roads is such a wasteful way to transport a lot of people.
