Fernando Haddad (EN) – and bike rack

“Will need to rethink the logistics of what’s there. Today, the bike racks are concentrated in the Metro stations – assuming people already have a bicycle and that, with them, they would reach the stations. I think we should have bike racks throughout the city, not only in the seasons, but, as is the case in France, scatter them everywhere. People who don’t have own bike also must be inserted”. Haddad says spent your childhood in São Paulo Plateau region, upon a bicycle.

Jose Serra (PSDB) – intermodality and rent

“The bike lanes will expand along with the new subway lines. We need to expand the integration of bicycle transportation systems like trains and subway. Highlight the need to invest heavily in education, mutual respect between drivers and cyclists. The bike is very important as an alternative to urban mobility and fluidity to the transport “. Sierra account that won your first bike to 12 years and, with her, knew every corner of Mooca, Vila Prudente, shallow water, Bethlehem, oratory.

Gabriel Chalita (PMDB) – caution and education

“According to research published by Our São Paulo Network, 48.8% of the inhabitants want more investment in bike lanes. But, to be a real alternative, it would be necessary to build many kilometers of bike lanes, improve access and communication between them and educate people on the importance of respecting cyclists. We can’t endanger the lives of the people. You must construct this carefully transport alternative but consistent “. Chalita intends to draw on the example of European cities like Brussels, Paris, Amsterdam and Berlin.

Frazer (PPS)-Ciclorrotas and public bikes

“The signaling is important in the process with a lot of traffic. I also believe in a kind of ‘Bike Box’ – where the cyclist could position themselves in front of cars when the Lighthouse is closed. This will give you more safety and reduce accidents. I am also in favour of public and shared bikes. Because, sometimes, leaving the House of bike is way out with an umbrella. That is, can be uncomfortable throughout the day, the best is that you can use it to a point and leave it for others to use after cyclist”. For her, the City Council needs to offer a service to publicize alternative routes for cyclists.
