Hội An, Vietnam: On its way to become the first ecocity with a comprehensive bicycle plan and bike-sharing system
This is a project case story within the framework of the TUMI Challenge 2018. The city of Hội An is on its way to become the fi rst EcoCity in Vietnam. Faced with new challenges such as climate change, rapid urbanization, and increased number of tourists, the prioritization of walking, cycling, and public transit is at the core of Hội An’s urban development strategy. Key initiatives adopted are the pedestrianization of the Old Town, the piloting of shared e-vehicles as a public transport option, and the upcoming public-private bike-sharing program.
