An interesting idea, because people will also enjoy the area, complete with bike lanes, so as to encourage people to reduce the use of motor vehicles.
Breakthrough either of Hidalgo, even outside the region, she plans to make the entire region to be free of motor vehicles, as well as tram development plans service that will transport people of the city to be a long day.
