Transportation choices

I was looking through my pictures and found this one from a 2007 trip to Spain. This is a street in Sevilla, which was also in the midst of constructing a new subway system.

If you ever wondered what we mean by "transportation choices," this is it:

Multimodality from left to right:
1) a road (with as many buses as cars),
2) 2-way bike lanes, separated from motor vehicle traffic by a fence and a painted buffer, and
3) a wide sidewalk, separated from motor vehicle traffic by bike lanes and from bike traffic by a wide, tree-lined area. Crosswalks clearly marked.

This is how you do it.
