Harmonising Mobility, Convenience, Safety and Choice in a City

I was strolling around streets in Toronto. Carefully examining every component of the street, I was amazed by the harmonic coexistence of different forms of transport. As the photo above shows, the city not only allows the coexistence of cars, trams and bikes, but also puts them in a harmonious configuration. The citizens can choose to commute by walking, cycling, taking the tram or driving their own cars.

This is a good example of a well-planned city. It was constructed to facilitate different choices of transport and it demonstrates how pedestrian paths, roads, railways and bike paths can be structured harmoniously as a whole to facilitate these choices. Any cities that strive for a low carbon lifestyle and smart mobility may take this as a reference.
