The Re-Way prioritizes people over automobiles. Re-purposing the networked infrastructure of the HOV lane into a bike-way – with non-stop, easy access service to points throughout the city.
The Re-Way project asked important questions. What is the incentive for Houstonians and people throughout the U.S. to change their mode of transportation from automobiles to bikes? What type of infrastructure would it take to make this a reasonable alternative? And how can we combine investment in public works with investment in civic infrastructure that connects users to programs to networks?
The Re-Way solution reconsiders, rethinks, reprioritizes, and redesigns public architecture to meet people’s needs. Transforming the networked infrastructure of the HOV lane, a system that today carries just over 200,000 passengers and drivers daily, into a bike-way – with non-stop, easy access service to many points throughout the city.
