Mobility Concerns

A team from Mexico City has won this year´s Audi Urban Future award with a scheme that collects location data from commuters to identify problems in the city´s congested road network. The interdisciplinary team, headed by architect and city planner Jose Castillo, proposed an ¨operating system for urban mobility¨ to relieve the Mexican capital of its problems with traffic - beating groups from Berlin, Seoul and Boston to win the Ç100,000 (-80,000) prize awarded by German car brand Audi. An estimated four million vehicles use Mexico City´s road network, with the worst affected areas around the Santa Fe business district - where commuters face journeys of up to three hours to reach their workplaces.
