Paris is one of the largest cities in Europe, and with that comes the challenges of creating a transport system that serves its millions of inhabitants. Its public transport system operates over 300 bus lines, a full Métro system, and eight tramway lines.
The French capital has faced major challenges with congestion in the past, but in recent years has made a conscious effort to move away from being a car-dominated city. Following COVID-19, the city more actively embraced shared and active modes, with pop-up cycle lanes appearing across the city. 2020 also saw the emergence of a new city policy - the 15-minute city.
This idea seeks to create a decentralised city: at its heart is the concept of mixing urban social functions to create vibrant neighbourhoods and local areas. This has the potential to transform how people move in and through the French capital.
