The heart of Market Street in San Francisco now is car-free, mostly: “Only buses, streetcars, traditional taxis, ambulances, and freight drop-offs are still allowed.” There are potential lessons from Europe (via Mark Isero) for other ways American cities could reduce traffic, including multimodal streets, congestion pricing, “limited traffic” zones, eliminating street parking, expanding transit, and “reclaiming” public spaces.
