During his three-year term as mayor of Bogotá, Colómbia, Peñalosa implemented profound changes which transformed the capital and changed the attitude of its 7 million inhabitants. He massively improved slums, built formidable schools and nurseries, beautiful libraries and hundreds of parks and other pedestrian spaces. He was a leading innovator in America in creating a bicycle path network, restricting car use and radically improving pedestrian facilities, building more than a hundred kilometres of pedestrian streets and greenways. Inspired by the Curitiba model, he created the TransMilenio bus transit system which has been a role model to many cities.
