Moving Beyond the Automobile: More from the Streetfilms Series on Livable Streets

by Ben Jervey

February 26, 2011

The good folks at Streetfilms have started rolling out a new 10-part video series about smart and proven solutions for reducing automobile traffic and making city streets safer, healthier, and better for business. In other words: making the streets more livable.

It's called Moving Beyond the Automobile, and here's how they describe it:

Moving Beyond the Automobile is a ten part video series which explores solutions to the problem of automobile dependency.  It's a visual handbook that will help guide policy makers, advocacy organizations, teachers, students, and others into a world that values pedestrian plazas over parking lots and train tracks over highways.  Cars were then, and this is now.  Welcome to the future.

Subsequent videos will cover bicycling, car share, congestion pricing, highway removal, traffic calming, pricing parking, parking removal, road diet (we look forward to learning more about this), and, finally, bus rapid transit.

The first couple of videos are really well done: educational, fun, informative, and persuasive without being preachy. We look forward to seeing the rest.
