PBOT planner, Denver Igarta, spent the month of November meeting with planners, advocates, urban designers and engineers in Munich (Germany), Rotterdam (Netherlands), Copenhagen (Denmark) and Malmo (Sweden), on a fellowship sponsored by the German Marshall Fund. His presentation sheds light on a few things that distinguish these cities (with 17-36 percent bicycle mode shares) and what that means for Portland’s goal of achieving a quarter of all daily trips taken by bicycle.
