The World’s Widest Avenue Gets a Transit Makeover

Buenos Aires, Argentina has seen significant changes to its daily life since city buses have been re-routed from narrow historic town streets to a new two-lane, ten-line bus corridor. Individual travel times have been greatly reduced, leaving persons with more time to spend with family and engaged in other activities, thus enhancing quality of life. The 9 de Julio Avenue corridor features 17 stations and accommodates 11 bus lines, circulating 200,000 riders every day. The corridor is part of the larger Sustainable Mobility Plan for the city that includes increased pedestrianization, an extended public bike sharing system, a larger bicycling network, traffic calming and road safety infrastructure.
