Those who come to the city for the first time, or visit it after many years, are surprised by the growth of biking popularity. It’s really easy to get around by bicycle in Buenos Aires, and all this makes BA the most “bike friendly” city in South America.
Just as the great capitals of the world, that have already adopted the bicycle as a sustainable and healthy means of transport, Buenos Aires has been on the same path for already many years.
Bike commuiting incentives
Since 2009 bike lanes are being built in the city to encourage the use of the bike.
Currently, the city of Buenos Aires has more than 200km bike lanes, very well connected one to each other. So you can commute from very distant points, riding exclusively by bike lanes.
Besides, by the beginning of 2018, traffic in the area known as “Microcentro” was reduced. Between 11 am and 4 pm access is only permitted for taxis and vehicles exclusively authorized to circulate. This change made the area much more pedestrian friendly.
