The French capital is reinforcing its status as one of the world’s great cities by literally putting its best foot forward. Paris is reclaiming streets and public spaces for people, reconnecting the city to the River Seine, providing bike share on a large scale (including bike share for kids), giving priority to buses on surface streets, and developing an extensive light rail network in the suburbs and 200km of new rail, including a ring metro line with the Grand Paris Express project. Carlos Moreno, the mayor of Paris’s special envoy for smart cities, will share these and other innovative developments in Paris.
