Most dense, rapidly motorizing cities suffer from severe congestion, poor public transport, and difficult conditions for walking and cycling. This paper takes Lima, Peru, as a prime example of this global urban problem, providing a detailed anatomy of its passenger transport problems. It traces the planning and transport history of the city, which explain how it arrived at this situation, and outlines its current major problems. Lima is placed in a global context by quantitatively comparing it to other world cities and examining its strengths and weaknesses regarding mobility. The paper details the strategies the region needs to follow to develop a more functional, equitable, and attractive transport system. The results provide important information for other cities with similar problems and hope for a way forward. View this paper
