How do you like the car-free sections of Bogota? I've heard that some people like the car-free zones and others say that it is bad for businesses. How do you, as a Bogota resident, feel about it?

I also live in Bogotá and I can tell you that those ciclovias are main car streets closed for around 7 hours only on sundays (mailnly in the morning). this means that there are not to much impact for the businesses, furthermore there are always alternative streets to reach your destination if you do not want to ride your bike. In bogota we have been doing this quite many years and rigth now 30% of the citizens (2 millon app.)use it across 120Km of car free streets.

I forgot to tell you that those ciclovias are part of a program for urban development nearly 100 kilometers of bicycle paths that have been created in Bogota as an alternatives for daily travel.
Some of the bicycle paths are located next to the main roads or secondary streets. This was done in order to improve pollution, traffic jams and life quiality.
