Revista de Imprensa #2

Sempre que se justificar, faremos aqui uma revista de imprensa – um apanhado do que de melhor se publicou na comunicação social em Portugal e lá fora sobre mobilidade e sustentabilidade em Lisboa. Nesta segunda edição, falamos de estafetas de bicicleta, de passes sociais, de mulheres a pedalar e do sucesso das infraestruturas pop-up.

Precário e sem fôlego: a vida de Hossain, estafeta de bicicleta na cidade íngreme | Mensagem

“Quem os vê a pedalar em Lisboa talvez imagine a vida dura que levam a tentar ganhar a vida. A maior parte estrangeiros, sem papéis, a lutar por um lugar nas plataformas, os que andam de bicicleta são os mais precários dos precários. Agora, há uma associação que quer defendê-los.” Uma reportagem do jornalista Frederico Raposo sobre os estafetas precários.

Want to make the streets safer for women? Start with cycling | The Guardian

“Evidence from other countries shows that women are more likely to cycle than men when there is supportive cycling infrastructure in place, such as bike lanes that are well-lit and fully separated from traffic, and safe routes that facilitate diverse journeys (not simply commuting from the outer to inner city). In the Netherlands and Copenhagen for example, 55% of journeys by bike are made by women. In Paris and Lisbon, the number of female cyclists has increased with recent investment in protected bike lanes and other measures.”

If You Build It, They Will Bike: Pop-Up Lanes Increased Cycling During Pandemic | The New York Times

“A study of European cities adds to a growing body of evidence that investments in cycling infrastructure can encourage bike commuting, which helps cut greenhouse gas emissions.

Adding bike lanes to urban streets can increase the number of cyclists across an entire city, not just on the streets with new bike lanes, according to a new study. The finding adds to a growing body of research indicating that investments in cycling infrastructure can encourage more people to commute by bike, which helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve health.

‘It’s the first piece of evidence we have trying to, at a larger scale, link the bikeway infrastructure — these pop-up bike lanes and things that were built — to cycling levels during Covid,’ said Ralph Buehler, chairman of urban affairs and planning in the School of Public and International Affairs at Virginia Tech, who was not involved in the study.”
