COMMENTS:
Thumbs up:
• JuanP (Bogota): To Build Transmilenio in Carrera 7a, the most iconic street in the city (which is actually something he initially opposed to, but ended up doing because it would've caused serious failures in the coverage of the system).


Thumbs down:
• JuanP (Bogota): Car restriction for two entire days a week. The mayor did this as a visible measure to try to solve Bogota's traffic problems by diminishing the number of cars in the streets, instead of pushing an integrated public transportation system. This wasn't done because Moreno prefered to favor interests of private bus owners who currently run bus routes in the city, but cause most of the traffic problems, contamination and accidents in the city.
• J R, Bogota: He plans to build a metro rail system before improving existing public transport/
• Carolina, Bogota: He decided to restrict the use of cars for 2 entire days a week, which has resulted in unemployement.
• Morpen O, Bogota: Mayor Moreno has not made any good decisions since he took office in 2007. Although the security and transportation problems is getting worse and worse, the mayor took one month vacation and three months later went for a spiritual break. He hasn't made a decision on the continuation of the citie's mega projects such as transmilenio's phases III and IV, and the metro for the city.
