The beauty of targets is that they can be aimed for and achieved. Currently, there is no direction and no measurable outcomes.
SET A TARGET and then meet it. The cities below have committed to:
- Copenhagen 50% of all trips by 2015
- Brisbane 8% of all trips by 2016
- Sydney 10% of all trips by 2016
- 27 European cities through the “Charter of Brussels” – 15% of all trips by 2020
- Bremen in Germany 30% of all trips by 2020
- London 5% of all trips by 2025
