The Latin America City Showcase was held in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, Brazil on 23-25 March 2015. It consisted of interactive site visits of Sustainable Urban Mobility solutions, workshops and meetings to allow stakeholders to gain first-hand experience of innovative solutions, exchange knowledge and share information.
City representatives, policy makers, technology providers and researchers from Europe, Latin America and Mediterranean Partner Countries were among the attendees.
Three site visits (transport control centre, Gondola lift and BRT) were organised in Rio de Janeiro. Site visits in São Paulo included Leisure Cycling Lanes which allow flexible use of road space and a seamless and multimodal travel experience enabled by an integrated ticketing system.
Future cooperation priorities were also identified during the event.
