      Hi Oscar,

      >You can add this paragraph to the note Bogota Car Free Day, Again.

      Thanks, I've added a slightly-edited version of your text below.

      Regards,

      Joel

      >"Democracy in Movement, Car-Free Day 2001" was the name of this event. Two new components made mobility easier and gave citizens a glimpse of travel in the year 2015: 100-plus kilometres of cycle paths and two lines of TransMilenio with 95 buses transporting 200 000 people. The priority was public transport; people had to get to know TransMilenio and its feeders to use the system efficiently. It was also important to avoid congestion and increase travel velocity of those vehicles that were allowed, so the space for cyclists was reduced. Antanas Mockus, the new mayor, also met with some business associations to convince them that the city could function normally without private cars.

      >Special guests for the events included mayors from other Colombian cities and other Latin American countries who wanted to experience first-hand the car-free city experience. Bogotá has provided an inspiration for other cities to join the First Earth Car Free Day 2001, to be held on April 19.
