Nous demeurons coincés dans une pensée traditionnelle de la mobilité où
la demande dirige la gestion et cela signifie immanquablement plus
d’infrastructure. Bon nombre de villes européennes prouvent entre-temps
qu’il est possible de penser et d’agir différemment sur le plan de la
mobilité.  After The Car met en avant ces bons exemples et engage l’imagination pour réfléchir à un nouveau paradigme de mobilité.
