Paris May Go Car-Free

Mayor Anne Hidalgo of Paris Freance announced ambitious plans to ban cars from the city center, the Seine and the  Avenue des Champs-Élysées.

Wonder what is planned in Laguna's sister city Meton, France?  How about Forest Avenue, Laguna Beach?

 Did you know:
  • Paris is home to the largest bike-share system outside of China with 18,000 shared bicycles. 
  • Since the introduction of Velib in 2007 the number of Parisians riding bicycle increased from 40% in 2011 to 60% today.
  • Paris plans to double the number of bike-lanes by 2020 for $147 million bike development program.
