Bogota, Colombia’s capital and home of almost 11 million people, has suffered with its mobility for decades. Although it has the most successful BRT in the world, “Transmilenio”, the private vehicle is still really attractive, and hence, the majority of the interventions are related to this mode of transportation. Programmes such as the MOVE Meter support the urban and transport planning institutions to visualize the effects of different measures in the traffic of the city. For Bogota, the MOVE Meter was used to show the decision makers and transport planners of the Secretary of Mobility of the city, the benefits of establishing cycling corridors, the impact of controversial projects such as the new peripheral roads and the change of short car trips to bicycle.
