You would think that a city where barely over a quarter of all trips are made by car would be happy to rest on its laurels. Not so in Vienna, which wants to drop car mode share to 15% or less of all trips. Vienna now has more public transit-pass holders than registered cars—and a transit pass that costs just €1 per day. It has a proud tradition of extensive social housing for all strata of society, not just the most poor, which has helped keep the city affordable for all in the face of significant population growth. Vienna is developing dense mixed-use brownfields sites on its former railyards and its range of initiatives include gender mainstreaming to promote integration and inclusiveness. Learn about these and many other Vienna initiatives from Andreas Lindinger, a Vienna-based sustainability expert, urban thinker passionate about liveable cities and graduate of SFU's Next-Generation Transportation Certificate program.
