Pedestrians and Cyclists
Cycling is nowadays as significant as a form of transport as public transport in Turku. The importance of walking and cycling will further stand out in the jammed urban traffic of the future. The greater portion of travelling is made on foot or by bike, the less there will be traffic jams and the better the traffic will flow. Walking and cycling do not cause greenhouse gas emissions, air pollution, or noise. When the city structure is such that it is possible to travel on foot or by bike instead of cars, transport takes less space and causes less costs. Exercise and its health benefits are a central motive to walk or cycle also the everyday trips. Combining everyday exercise and fitness training contributes to health significantly.
