This is one of those ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’ pictures. It’s a poster by the City of Muenster, Germany, titled Amount of space required to transport the same number of passengers by car, bus or bicycle.
Of course this assumes the average number of occupants per vehicle, which is around 1.2-1.4 worldwide during commuting hours. Considering how cities are going green by implementing smart grids, which is fast becoming the energy infrastructure standard, we’ll soon start to see the same with traffic, led by London, not coincidentally a global magnet for creatives.
One image that’s missing is one for ‘Feet?‘ – which would obviously not take up any extra space at all!
