Mobility Network Director Professor Eric Miller travelled to Bogotá, Colombia to take part in the city's Sustainable Mobility Week (Semana de la Movilidad Sostenible) January 30 - February 3, 2023.

The week's activities under the theme "Building equality and equity in the distribution of public space" were organized by the Office of the Mayor of Bogotá, and bookended the city's "Car and Motorcycle Free Day" (Día sin carro y sin moto) February 2, an initiative adopted by Bogotá in 2000.

Miller was one of 13 international experts and several international organizations such as CAF and C40 who were invited to take part in the week.

All of the invited guests explored the city using a variety of sustainable modes such as walking, e-bikes (using Bogotá’s new Bicycle Share System), e-bus, van, or cable car.

They made site visits and took part in public events and panel discussions where they provided expert commentary on what is going on in Bogotá with respect to mobility, discussing public works in progress to connect multi-modal transportation within Bogotá and the greater Bogotá region.

Miller spoke on a number of topics, including, for example, how to ensure sustainable and participatory business models around zero-emission technologies by adapting businesses that currently rely on fossil fuels for mobility.

Bogotá Mayor Claudia López tweeted and hosted a dinner in honour of the visitors, providing a warm welcome.
