Cities value sustainability as a way to combat undesirable effects of urbanization such as atmospheric pollution and traffic congestion. In response to population growth and traffic issues, EMOV EP, the governmental transportation division of Cuenca, has initiated a variety of bike promoting programs to encourage the use of non-motorized transportation. Thus, the goal of this project is to create resources that EMOV EP can utilize to further promote cycling as a form of transportation in Cuenca. To make cycling more appealing to students, we created a map of safe bike routes to combat the found barriers including a concern for safety, lack of accessibility to bikes, and culture and mentality.
