Did You Know?
Curitiba along with its intense zoning has social service and cultural hubs at its bus transfer stations. The City also has a transfer of development rights program. Read more about this history here. Don't get me started on BRT though...they will be building a metro shortly, apparently with a world bank loan. It should be ready they say by 2009.
