Copenhagen Mayor

Had a chance to speak with the Mayor of Copenhagen after a conf
session yesterday. Great conversation about the success of their bike
share program and the stumbling blocks it faced. They estimate that
it has reduced traffic in the town center by 25% including the
increased private bike use. We spoke of a Austin/Copenhagen
sustainable municipal policy mtg.... Hoping Mayor Leffingwell would be
in to hosting such an event. We have a lot that we could learn from
Europe on such things.
