Share the road

Share the Road Programme supports governments and other stakeholders in developing countries to move away from prioritizing the car-driving minority, towards investing in infrastructure for the majority: those who walk and cycle.

No matter where you live or how you travel, everyone begins and ends each trip as a pedestrian. In cities across the world, many people rely almost exclusively on walking and cycling to get where they need to go. But increasing the road space for cars continues to be a priority for investors and governments alike.
