La Rochelle, France

La Rochelle is a one thousand year old city with a population of 80 000 inhabitants and a seaport on the Atlantic coast.

La Rochelle launched one of the first successful bicycle sharing systems in 1974, but more than 40 years later only 10% of the population living in the city center use regularly their bike. La Rochelle wants a new vision of mobility and now needs to rebalance the public space and create a city for people where residents no longer rely on their cars but on public transports, shared cars and bikes, transform La rochelle in a more walkable city with less pollution, less noise, less stress.

Living Streets in La Rochelle

La Rochelle is focusing on the involvement of schools and shop owners and in summer 2017 a whole district in the city centre will be closed to the car.
The Living Streets process builds on the “Rue de l’enfant” initiative that was organised in 2016 and 2017. Within this initiative, during one day, the streets nearby the school Pierre Loti is closed to the cars and several awareness raising and social activities are organised for the scool children and their parents.
