In the 1960s, Copenhagen began shifting away from a trend of automobile-domination, and today the streets have fully evolved to a pedestrian and bicycle paradise. San Jose, itself in the process of a significant multi-modal shift, has been taking notes. Join three of the city’s top transportation officials, rich with experience from visiting Copenhagen, and hear what the city has learned from this European case study.
