Returning streets to the people

Walking and non-motorised vehicles are the major means of transport for most poor people in Asian cities. They provide access to economic opportunities, health services, and other social services essential for survival. For many people, walking is the only way of getting to work, even over long distances. Even subsidised public transport and low cost bicycles are out of reach. These people are captive pedestrians. Those who use public transport systems also become pedestrians at least four times a day when they access those systems.
