As Turkey rapidly grows more urban and citizens are faced with the choice between private cars and sustainable transport, the need for infrastructure that supports active or non-motorized transport has never been greater. EMBARQ Turkey, in partnership with city officials of Istanbul and Konya, has developed City of [Bike] for City, an ambitious plan to develop 1000 km (~620 miles) of bike lanes in both cities by 2023. This would mean tripling the number of bike lanes EMBARQ Turkey has currently developed. But EMBARQ Turkey is not waiting a decade to get started. Already in 2014 32 km (~20 miles) are to be constructed in Istanbul, and another 150 km (~93 miles) of bike lanes are projected this year for the city of Konya. Each city faces distinct problems, but EMBARQ Turkey hopes both cities can develop a comprehensive set of principles that policymakers, designers and community members can follow to shape safe and well-used cycling facilities throughout all of Turkey.
