With a focus on delivering key projects like the TransMilenio bus rapid transit system and one of the largest bicycle networks in Latin America — as well as notable improvements in libraries, land use, affordable housing and public space — Mayor Peñalosa brought diverse sectors of the city together to overcome common challenges and become recognized as a model for urban change. Join him for a discussion about his legacy, his current work and the future of cities.
