To solve the complex mobility problems of Mexico City, it is essential to place people at the center of mobility policies. When we solve a person's problems, we can create solutions on a larger scale. By putting people at the center, especially those who are most vulnerable, we can solve accessibility problems, reduce travel times and aspire to comfortable and safe trips for those who travel through Mexico City.
The objective of the City: One Challenge is to identify unmet problems, experiences and mobility needs, collaborate in the identification of solutions and propose pilot projects that have an immediate impact on improving the mobility of people, specifically women and groups in a situation of vulnerability, such as people with disabilities, older adults, girls and boys, who live in the periphery of the city.
We hope that these pilots, who will be able to receive up to 2 million pesos* in funds for their implementation, propose creative solutions that improve the trips of people who live in peripheral areas of the city, in particular of the priority groups, with the objective of reduce travel times, provide better information, comfort, security and accessibility while traveling. We hope that these pilots will also help inform future investments in social innovation, technology and infrastructure, as well as public policies that put the mobility needs of all people at the center.
Right now, we're in the Propose phase, so we want to hear your proposals for improving mobility in Mexico City. By clicking the “Submit your proposal” above, you can submit your proposal for a chance to win up to 2 million pesos* to pilot your idea. The deadline for proposals is October 17, 2019 at 5 PM CST.
